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

÷

=

ForestGreen Box   Tan Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     ForestGreen Box   Tan 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
÷

=
6

÷

=

DarkOrange Box   MediumOrchid Box   Turquoise Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Maroon Box   Aquamarine Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     DarkOrange Box   MediumOrchid Box   Turquoise Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Maroon Box   Aquamarine 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.

DarkOrange Box   MediumOrchid Box   Turquoise Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Maroon Box   Aquamarine Box

Thistle Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   BurlyWood Box   Fuchsia Box   RoyalBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   DarkBlue Box   SkyBlue Box   Brown Box   MidnightBlue Box   CadetBlue Box   OliveDrab Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Thistle Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   BurlyWood Box   Fuchsia Box   RoyalBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   DarkBlue Box   SkyBlue Box   Brown Box   MidnightBlue Box   CadetBlue Box   OliveDrab 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.

Thistle Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   BurlyWood Box   Fuchsia Box   RoyalBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   DarkBlue Box   SkyBlue Box   Brown Box   MidnightBlue Box   CadetBlue Box   OliveDrab 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.
