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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   SpringGreen Box   MediumOrchid Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     SpringGreen Box   MediumOrchid 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   OliveDrab Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Fuchsia Box   LimeGreen Box   DarkMagenta Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     OliveDrab Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Fuchsia Box   LimeGreen Box   DarkMagenta 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.

            

   OliveDrab Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Fuchsia Box   LimeGreen Box   DarkMagenta Box

Try this problem.

÷
  
=
                        
 
   Empty Box   MediumPurple Box   SaddleBrown Box   Olive Box   MidnightBlue Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Coral Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Thistle Box   Gold Box   Maroon Box   Pink Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Empty Box   MediumPurple Box   SaddleBrown Box   Olive Box   MidnightBlue Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Coral Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Thistle Box   Gold Box   Maroon Box   Pink 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.

                        

   Empty Box   MediumPurple Box   SaddleBrown Box   Olive Box   MidnightBlue Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Coral Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Thistle Box   Gold Box   Maroon Box   Pink 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.
