Basic Division Lesson 4: Number 4

Here's an easy example:

12
÷
4
=
3
 
                        
÷
        
=
      
 
 divided by   equals 

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:

32
÷
4
=
8
 
                                                                
÷
        
=
                
 
 divided   equals 

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.

            

   EX21TextBox1   EX21TextBox2   EX21TextBox3   EX21TextBox4   EX21TextBox5   EX21TextBox6

Try this problem.

44
÷
4
=
 
                                                                                        
÷
        
=
                      
 
 divided   equals 

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.

                      

   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:

  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.
