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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   SeaGreen Box   DarkBlue Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     SeaGreen Box   DarkBlue 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   RoyalBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   GreenYellow Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   MidnightBlue Box   Chartreuse Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     RoyalBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   GreenYellow Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   MidnightBlue Box   Chartreuse 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.

            

   RoyalBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   GreenYellow Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   MidnightBlue Box   Chartreuse Box

Try this problem.

   Brown Box   BurlyWood Box   Gold Box   Yellow Box   Sienna Box   CornflowerBlue Box   DarkOrange Box   DarkOrchid Box   Peru Box   Khaki Box   DodgerBlue Box   LimeGreen Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Brown Box   BurlyWood Box   Gold Box   Yellow Box   Sienna Box   CornflowerBlue Box   DarkOrange Box   DarkOrchid Box   Peru Box   Khaki Box   DodgerBlue Box   LimeGreen 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.

                        

   Brown Box   BurlyWood Box   Gold Box   Yellow Box   Sienna Box   CornflowerBlue Box   DarkOrange Box   DarkOrchid Box   Peru Box   Khaki Box   DodgerBlue Box   LimeGreen 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.
