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   DarkOrange Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Fuchsia Box   DarkOrange 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   MediumOrchid Box   SpringGreen Box   SteelBlue Box   Tan Box   RoyalBlue Box   Magenta Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     MediumOrchid Box   SpringGreen Box   SteelBlue Box   Tan Box   RoyalBlue Box   Magenta 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.

            

   MediumOrchid Box   SpringGreen Box   SteelBlue Box   Tan Box   RoyalBlue Box   Magenta Box

Try this problem.

   Olive Box   Sienna Box   Violet Box   Orchid Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   DodgerBlue Box   Coral Box   Chartreuse Box   OliveDrab Box   Aquamarine Box   Cyan Box   Peru Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Olive Box   Sienna Box   Violet Box   Orchid Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   DodgerBlue Box   Coral Box   Chartreuse Box   OliveDrab Box   Aquamarine Box   Cyan Box   Peru 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.

                        

   Olive Box   Sienna Box   Violet Box   Orchid Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   DodgerBlue Box   Coral Box   Chartreuse Box   OliveDrab Box   Aquamarine Box   Cyan Box   Peru 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.
