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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   CornflowerBlue Box   SteelBlue Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     CornflowerBlue Box   SteelBlue 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   SeaGreen Box   Brown Box   MediumOrchid Box   Sienna Box   Pink Box   Olive Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     SeaGreen Box   Brown Box   MediumOrchid Box   Sienna Box   Pink Box   Olive 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.

            

   SeaGreen Box   Brown Box   MediumOrchid Box   Sienna Box   Pink Box   Olive Box

Try this problem.

   DarkSlateBlue Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   Chartreuse Box   Violet Box   CadetBlue Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkGreen Box   HotPink Box   DarkKhaki Box   Tan Box   Magenta Box   Cyan Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     DarkSlateBlue Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   Chartreuse Box   Violet Box   CadetBlue Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkGreen Box   HotPink Box   DarkKhaki Box   Tan Box   Magenta Box   Cyan 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.

                        

   DarkSlateBlue Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   Chartreuse Box   Violet Box   CadetBlue Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkGreen Box   HotPink Box   DarkKhaki Box   Tan Box   Magenta Box   Cyan 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.
