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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   GreenYellow Box   Blue Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     GreenYellow Box   Blue 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   DeepSkyBlue Box   Aqua Box   CornflowerBlue Box   BlueViolet Box   Purple Box   Olive Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     DeepSkyBlue Box   Aqua Box   CornflowerBlue Box   BlueViolet Box   Purple Box   Olive 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.

            

   DeepSkyBlue Box   Aqua Box   CornflowerBlue Box   BlueViolet Box   Purple Box   Olive Box

Try this problem.

   Navy Box   Magenta Box   SeaGreen Box   Wheat Box   Maroon Box   SaddleBrown Box   Cyan Box   SlateBlue Box   MediumTurquoise Box   Orchid Box   DarkOrchid Box   MediumSeaGreen Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Navy Box   Magenta Box   SeaGreen Box   Wheat Box   Maroon Box   SaddleBrown Box   Cyan Box   SlateBlue Box   MediumTurquoise Box   Orchid Box   DarkOrchid Box   MediumSeaGreen 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.

                        

   Navy Box   Magenta Box   SeaGreen Box   Wheat Box   Maroon Box   SaddleBrown Box   Cyan Box   SlateBlue Box   MediumTurquoise Box   Orchid Box   DarkOrchid Box   MediumSeaGreen 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.
