Basic Division Lesson 2: Number 2

Here's an easy example:

4
÷
2
=
2
 
        
÷
    
=
    
 
 divided by   equals 

We start with four boxes. We divide these four boxes by two. This means: how many groups of two can we make with the four boxes that we have? Answer: 2.

    


Here's another example:

10
÷
2
=
5
 
                    
÷
    
=
          
 
 divided   equals 

We start with ten boxes. We divide these ten boxes by two. This means: how many groups of two can we make with the ten boxes that we have? Answer: 5.

          

   EX21TextBox1   EX21TextBox2   EX21TextBox3   EX21TextBox4   EX21TextBox5

Try this problem.

22
÷
2
=
 
                                            
÷
    
=
                      
 
 divided   equals 

We start with twenty-two boxes. We divide these twenty-two boxes by two. This means: how many groups of two can we make with the twenty-two boxes that we have? Answer: 11.

                      

   EX31TextBox1   EX31TextBox2   EX31TextBox3   EX31TextBox4   EX31TextBox5   EX31TextBox6   EX31TextBox7   EX31TextBox8   EX31TextBox9   EX31TextBox10   EX31TextBox11

In order to do basic division, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! When you are finished with this lesson, you will know the following equations:

  2 ÷ 2 =   1
  4 ÷ 2 =   2
  6 ÷ 2 =   3
  8 ÷ 2 =   4
10 ÷ 2 =   5
12 ÷ 2 =   6
14 ÷ 2 =   7
16 ÷ 2 =   8
18 ÷ 2 =   9
20 ÷ 2 = 10
22 ÷ 2 = 11
24 ÷ 2 = 12


The following exercise will help you learn the above equations and what they mean. Please take your time: take whatever time you need to learn the material.
