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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   CadetBlue Box   GreenYellow Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     CadetBlue Box   GreenYellow 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   Empty Box   YellowGreen Box   SlateBlue Box   Aquamarine Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   MediumOrchid Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Empty Box   YellowGreen Box   SlateBlue Box   Aquamarine Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   MediumOrchid 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.

            

   Empty Box   YellowGreen Box   SlateBlue Box   Aquamarine Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   MediumOrchid Box

Try this problem.

   MediumBlue Box   Aqua Box   Magenta Box   OliveDrab Box   SteelBlue Box   DarkTurquoise Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Olive Box   Peru Box   LawnGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Khaki Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     MediumBlue Box   Aqua Box   Magenta Box   OliveDrab Box   SteelBlue Box   DarkTurquoise Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Olive Box   Peru Box   LawnGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Khaki 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.

                        

   MediumBlue Box   Aqua Box   Magenta Box   OliveDrab Box   SteelBlue Box   DarkTurquoise Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Olive Box   Peru Box   LawnGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Khaki 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.
