Here's an easy example:

18
÷
6
=
3
 
                                    
÷
            
=
      
 
 divided by   equals 

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

      


Here's another example:

42
÷
6
=
7
 
                                                                                    
÷
            
=
              
 
 divided   equals 

We start with forty-two boxes. We divide these forty-two boxes by six. This means: how many groups of six can we make with the forty-two boxes that we have? Answer: 7.

 divided   equals 

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

                        

   EX31TextBox1   EX31TextBox2   EX31TextBox3   EX31TextBox4   EX31TextBox5   EX31TextBox6   EX31TextBox7   EX31TextBox8   EX31TextBox9   EX31TextBox10   EX31TextBox11   EX31TextBox12

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:

  6 ÷ 6 =   1
12 ÷ 6 =   2
18 ÷ 6 =   3
24 ÷ 6 =   4
30 ÷ 6 =   5
36 ÷ 6 =   6
42 ÷ 6 =   7
48 ÷ 6 =   8
54 ÷ 6 =   9
60 ÷ 6 = 10
66 ÷ 6 = 11
72 ÷ 6 = 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.
