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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Thistle Box   Plum Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Thistle Box   Plum 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   Chocolate Box   LawnGreen Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Orchid Box   Indigo Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     OliveDrab Box   Chocolate Box   LawnGreen Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Orchid Box   Indigo 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   Chocolate Box   LawnGreen Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Orchid Box   Indigo Box

Try this problem.

   HotPink Box   Gold Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkMagenta Box   Tan Box   MediumPurple Box   MediumTurquoise Box   SeaGreen Box   SandyBrown Box   Empty Box   SlateBlue Box   MediumOrchid Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     HotPink Box   Gold Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkMagenta Box   Tan Box   MediumPurple Box   MediumTurquoise Box   SeaGreen Box   SandyBrown Box   Empty Box   SlateBlue Box   MediumOrchid 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.

                        

   HotPink Box   Gold Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkMagenta Box   Tan Box   MediumPurple Box   MediumTurquoise Box   SeaGreen Box   SandyBrown Box   Empty Box   SlateBlue Box   MediumOrchid 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.
