Basic Division Lesson 2: Number 2

Here's an easy example:

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:

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.

Try this problem.

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.

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.
