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:

  10 ÷ 10 =   1
  20 ÷ 10 =   2
  30 ÷ 10 =   3
  40 ÷ 10 =   4
  50 ÷ 10 =   5
  60 ÷ 10 =   6
  70 ÷ 10 =   7
  80 ÷ 10 =   8
  90 ÷ 10 =   9
100 ÷ 10 = 10
110 ÷ 10 = 11
120 ÷ 10 = 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.
