Math Division through Fun Games.
For details, see near
the bottom of this page.

Please study
Division as repeated Subtraction,
if you have not already done so.

There, we introduced Division as
repeated Subtraction and solved a number
of examples including word problems.

We also explained the relationship
between multiplication and division
and the need of remembering
Multiplication tables in solving
Division problems.

That knowledge is a prerequisite here.

Here, we see some more division
problems in which we apply the
knowledge of Multiplication Tables
in solving them.

We also provide links to the
topics of Long Division, and
dividing Fractions and Decimals.

Example 1 of Math Division

Find 54 ÷ 6.

We have to find 54 ÷ 6.
That means we have to find a number
such that the number times 6 is 54.
That means we have to answer
how many times 6 is 54.

From the knowledge of 6 times
table, we know 6 times 9 is 54.

i.e. 9 x 6 = 54.

So, 54 ÷ 6 = 9. Ans.

Exercise 1A of Math Division

Find the following values with the
knowledge of Multiplication Tables.

  1. 18 ÷ 3.
  2. 28 ÷ 4.
  3. 48 ÷ 6.
  4. 35 ÷ 7.
  5. 81 ÷ 9.
  6. 56 ÷ 8.
  7. 45 ÷ 5.
  8. 18 ÷ 2.
  9. 49 ÷ 7.
  10. 64 ÷ 8.

For Answers see at the
bottom of the page.

Example 2 of Math Division

Now look at the question
fill in the blank ---- ÷ 3 = 8.

We have seen that finding the
result of division is finding
a number which when multiplied
by the dividing number
gives the number being divided.

Here we have to find the number
being divided (blank), which is
nothing but the multiplication of
the result and the dividing number.

So, blank number = 8 x 3 = 24. Ans.

Example 3 of Math Division

Fill in the blank
---- ÷ 6 = 9.

Blank number = 9 x 6 = 54. Ans.

Example 4 of Math Division

Fill in the blank
28 ÷ --- = 7.

We have seen that finding the
result of division is finding
a number which when multiplied
by the dividing number gives
the number being divided.

But here the dividing number
is blank and the result
of division is given.

Finding the dividing number is
nothing but finding a number which
when multiplied by the result
gives the number being divided.

Thus, in finding the blank in
28 ÷ --- = 7, is same as
finding a number which when
multiplied by 7 gives 28.

or how many times 7 is 28.

We know 4 times 7 is 28.

So, blank number = 4. Ans.

Example 5 of Math Division

Fill in the blank
72 ÷ --- = 8.

Blank number
= Number which when
multiplied by 8 gives 72
= 9. Ans.

Exercise 1B of Math Division

Fill in the blanks.

  1. --- ÷ 2 = 7
  2. 27 ÷ --- = 9
  3. --- ÷ 4 = 6
  4. 40 ÷ --- = 8
  5. --- ÷ 6 = 5
  6. 28 ÷ --- = 4
  7. --- ÷ 8 = 9
  8. 63 ÷ --- = 7
  9. --- ÷ 6 = 6
  10. 9 ÷ --- = 3

Progressive Learning of Math : Math Division

Recently, I have found a series of math curricula
(Both Hard Copy and Digital Copy) developed by a Lady Teacher
who taught everyone from Pre-K students to doctoral students
and who is a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.

This series is very different and advantageous
over many of the traditional books available.
These give students tools that other books do not.
Other books just give practice.
These teach students “tricks” and new ways to think.

These build a student’s new knowledge of concepts
from their existing knowledge.
These provide many pages of practice that gradually
increases in difficulty and provide constant review.

These also provide teachers and parents with lessons
on how to work with the child on the concepts.

The series is low to reasonably priced and include

Elementary Math curriculum


Algebra Curriculum.
