Basic Division Lesson 3: Number 3

Here's an easy example:

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

Here's another example:

We start with eighteen boxes. We divide these eighteen boxes by three. This means: how many groups of three can we make with the eighteen boxes that we have? Answer: 6.

Try this problem.

We start with thirty-six boxes. We divide these thirty-six boxes by three. This means: how many groups of three can we make with the thirty-six boxes that we have? Answer: 12.

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:

3 ÷ 3 = 1 6 ÷ 3 = 2 9 ÷ 3 = 3 12 ÷ 3 = 4 15 ÷ 3 = 5 18 ÷ 3 = 6 21 ÷ 3 = 7 24 ÷ 3 = 8 27 ÷ 3 = 9 30 ÷ 3 = 10 33 ÷ 3 = 11 36 ÷ 3 = 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.
