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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   LimeGreen Box   HotPink Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     LimeGreen Box   HotPink 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   BlueViolet Box   Goldenrod Box   YellowGreen Box   Blue Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Magenta Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     BlueViolet Box   Goldenrod Box   YellowGreen Box   Blue Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Magenta 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.

            

   BlueViolet Box   Goldenrod Box   YellowGreen Box   Blue Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Magenta Box

Try this problem.

   SeaGreen Box   Peru Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Khaki Box   Empty Box   MediumVioletRed Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Indigo Box   DarkBlue Box   Plum Box   Chocolate Box   RosyBrown Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     SeaGreen Box   Peru Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Khaki Box   Empty Box   MediumVioletRed Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Indigo Box   DarkBlue Box   Plum Box   Chocolate Box   RosyBrown 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.

                        

   SeaGreen Box   Peru Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Khaki Box   Empty Box   MediumVioletRed Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Indigo Box   DarkBlue Box   Plum Box   Chocolate Box   RosyBrown 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.
