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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Fuchsia Box   SkyBlue Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Fuchsia Box   SkyBlue 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   Navy Box   Green Box   DeepPink Box   Thistle Box   Coral Box   Pink Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Navy Box   Green Box   DeepPink Box   Thistle Box   Coral Box   Pink 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.

            

   Navy Box   Green Box   DeepPink Box   Thistle Box   Coral Box   Pink Box

Try this problem.

12

   MidnightBlue Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   SeaGreen Box   BlueViolet Box   Maroon Box   DarkViolet Box   MediumAquamarine Box   DarkOrange Box   DarkMagenta Box   Brown Box   LimeGreen Box   Chartreuse Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     MidnightBlue Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   SeaGreen Box   BlueViolet Box   Maroon Box   DarkViolet Box   MediumAquamarine Box   DarkOrange Box   DarkMagenta Box   Brown Box   LimeGreen Box   Chartreuse 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.

                        

   MidnightBlue Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   SeaGreen Box   BlueViolet Box   Maroon Box   DarkViolet Box   MediumAquamarine Box   DarkOrange Box   DarkMagenta Box   Brown Box   LimeGreen Box   Chartreuse 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.
