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:

9 ÷ 9 =   1
18 ÷ 9 =   2
27 ÷ 9 =   3
36 ÷ 9 =   4
45 ÷ 9 =   5
54 ÷ 9 =   6
63 ÷ 9 =   7
72 ÷ 9 =   8
81 ÷ 9 =   9
90 ÷ 9 = 10
99 ÷ 9 = 11
108 ÷ 9 = 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.
