__Objective:__

At the end of this lesson, student should be able to divide numbers using the division sign comfortably.

Division means Sharing. We divide using the division (÷) symbol.

Any number divided by 1 is the number itself. For example 7 ÷ 1 = 7

If 7 apples are shared by one person, the person would get all the apples.

Any number divided by itself gives 1 as the answer e.g. 4 ÷ 4 = 1

If 4 apples are divided among 4 pupils, each will get 1 apple.

__Example 1__

Here are 12 candies. let’s divide them among 4 children.

This reads as 12 divided by 4 equals 3. It means each child has 3 sweets.

__Example 2__

If 6 x 2 = 12 and 12 ÷ 6 = 2

It means 12 ÷ 2 = 6, hence, 12 ÷ 6 = 2

3 x 8 = 24

So, 24 ÷ 8 = 3 and 24 ÷ 3 = 8

4 x 12 = 48

So, 48 ÷ 4 = 12 and 48 ÷ 12 = 4
