Basic Division Lesson 4: Number 4

Here's an easy example:

We start with twelve boxes. We divide these twelve boxes by four. This means: how many groups of four can we make with the twelve boxes that we have? Answer: 3.

Here's another example:

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

Try this problem.

We start with forty-four boxes. We divide these forty-four boxes by four. This means: how many groups of four can we make with the forty-four 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:

4 ÷ 4 = 1 8 ÷ 4 = 2 12 ÷ 4 = 3 16 ÷ 4 = 4 20 ÷ 4 = 5 24 ÷ 4 = 6 28 ÷ 4 = 7 32 ÷ 4 = 8 36 ÷ 4 = 9 40 ÷ 4 = 10 44 ÷ 4 = 11 48 ÷ 4 = 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.
