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

÷

=

Peru Box   Tan Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Peru 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

÷

=

Violet Box   Cyan Box   Orchid Box   Blue Box   ForestGreen Box   Plum Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Violet Box   Cyan Box   Orchid Box   Blue Box   ForestGreen Box   Plum 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.

Violet Box   Cyan Box   Orchid Box   Blue Box   ForestGreen Box   Plum 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.

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.
