Basic Division Lesson 1: Number 1

Welcome to Basic Division. In this unit, you will learn how to divide numbers from one to twelve and also zero. FoxyMath wishes you success!

Here's an easy example:

2
÷
1
=
2
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Goldenrod Box   Khaki Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Goldenrod Box   Khaki Box

We start with two boxes. We divide these two boxes by one. This means: how many groups of one can we make with the two boxes that we have? Answer: 2.

    


Here's another example:

6
÷
1
=
6
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   OliveDrab Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   GreenYellow Box   Tan Box   SteelBlue Box   Gold Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     OliveDrab Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   GreenYellow Box   Tan Box   SteelBlue Box   Gold Box

We start with six boxes. We divide these six boxes by one. This means: how many groups of one can we make with the six boxes that we have? Answer: 6.

            

   OliveDrab Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   GreenYellow Box   Tan Box   SteelBlue Box   Gold Box

Try this problem.

   Chartreuse Box   BurlyWood Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   CornflowerBlue Box   Blue Box   Violet Box   RoyalBlue Box   DarkCyan Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   DarkOrange Box   Navy Box   MidnightBlue Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Chartreuse Box   BurlyWood Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   CornflowerBlue Box   Blue Box   Violet Box   RoyalBlue Box   DarkCyan Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   DarkOrange Box   Navy Box   MidnightBlue Box

We start with twelve boxes. We divide these twelve boxes by one. This means: how many groups of one can we make with the twelve boxes that we have? Answer: 12.

                        

   Chartreuse Box   BurlyWood Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   CornflowerBlue Box   Blue Box   Violet Box   RoyalBlue Box   DarkCyan Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   DarkOrange Box   Navy Box   MidnightBlue Box

In order to do basic division, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! For this lesson, there is only one equation to learn:

  1 ÷ 1 =   1
  2 ÷ 1 =   2
  3 ÷ 1 =   3
  4 ÷ 1 =   4
  5 ÷ 1 =   5
  6 ÷ 1 =   6
  7 ÷ 1 =   7
  8 ÷ 1 =   8
  9 ÷ 1 =   9
10 ÷ 1 = 10
11 ÷ 1 = 11
12 ÷ 1 = 12

As we see, any number divided by one is the number itself.
