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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Teal Box   MidnightBlue Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Teal Box   MidnightBlue 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   Purple Box   Brown Box   Chartreuse Box   OliveDrab Box   DodgerBlue Box   DarkMagenta Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Purple Box   Brown Box   Chartreuse Box   OliveDrab Box   DodgerBlue 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.

            

   Purple Box   Brown Box   Chartreuse Box   OliveDrab Box   DodgerBlue Box   DarkMagenta Box

Try this problem.

   SlateBlue Box   Pink Box   MediumPurple Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Cyan Box   Lavender Box   MediumBlue Box   CadetBlue Box   DarkGreen Box   Olive Box   Navy Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     SlateBlue Box   Pink Box   MediumPurple Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Cyan Box   Lavender Box   MediumBlue Box   CadetBlue Box   DarkGreen Box   Olive Box   Navy 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.

                        

   SlateBlue Box   Pink Box   MediumPurple Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   DarkBlue Box   Cyan Box   Lavender Box   MediumBlue Box   CadetBlue Box   DarkGreen Box   Olive Box   Navy 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.
