Basic Division Lesson 5: Number 5

Here's an easy example:

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

Here's another example:

We start with forty-five boxes. We divide these forty-five boxes by five. This means: how many groups of five can we make with the forty-five boxes that we have? Answer: 9.

Try this problem.

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