Basic Division Lesson 5: Number 5

Here's an easy example:

10
÷
5
=
2
 
                    
÷
          
=
    
 
 divided by   equals 

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:

45
÷
5
=
9
 
                                                                                          
÷
          
=
                  
 
 divided   equals 

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.

55
÷
5
=

=
                      
 
 divided   equals 

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.

                      

   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:

  5 ÷ 5 =   1
10 ÷ 5 =   2
15 ÷ 5 =   3
20 ÷ 5 =   4
25 ÷ 5 =   5
30 ÷ 5 =   6
35 ÷ 5 =   7
40 ÷ 5 =   8
45 ÷ 5 =   9
50 ÷ 5 = 10
55 ÷ 5 = 11
60 ÷ 5 = 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.
