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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Yellow Box   DarkOliveGreen Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Yellow Box   DarkOliveGreen 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   Chocolate Box   MediumVioletRed Box   SandyBrown Box   SkyBlue Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSlateBlue Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Chocolate Box   MediumVioletRed Box   SandyBrown Box   SkyBlue Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSlateBlue 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.

            

   Chocolate Box   MediumVioletRed Box   SandyBrown Box   SkyBlue Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSlateBlue Box

Try this problem.

   Green Box   OliveDrab Box   DarkOrange Box   Maroon Box   DarkMagenta Box   RosyBrown Box   SaddleBrown Box   Sienna Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Fuchsia Box   Peru Box   GreenYellow Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Green Box   OliveDrab Box   DarkOrange Box   Maroon Box   DarkMagenta Box   RosyBrown Box   SaddleBrown Box   Sienna Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Fuchsia Box   Peru Box   GreenYellow 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.

                        

   Green Box   OliveDrab Box   DarkOrange Box   Maroon Box   DarkMagenta Box   RosyBrown Box   SaddleBrown Box   Sienna Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Fuchsia Box   Peru Box   GreenYellow 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.
