 # Know Your Division: Solve Division Problems

In this worksheet, students must solve division problems using multiplication tables. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   Word Problems

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

We can use multiplication tables to solve division problems.

Example A flower has 5 petals.

A bunch of these flowers have 55 petals between them.

How many flowers are in the bunch?

We need to think of where 55 comes in the 5 times table.

You should know that   11 × 5 = 55.

55 ÷ 5 = 11

11 flowers will have 55 petals. 8 friends are going to the cinema.

Their 8 cinema tickets cost £48 in total.

How much does each ticket cost in pounds?

(Just write the number.) A star has 5 points.

A group of these stars has 60 points altogether.

How many stars are in the group? An orchard has 8 rows of trees.

There are 64 trees in total.

Use division to work out how many trees are in each row. A car has 4 wheels.

In a car park, I count 36 wheels on all the cars.

How many cars are in the car park?

4 children collected £32 for charity.

They each collected the same amount.

How much did they each collect in pounds?

(Just write the number.) Apples cost 8p each.

I spend 72p on apples.

How many apples do I buy? A piece of rope is 96 m long.

John cuts it into pieces which are each 8 metres long.

How many pieces of rope does he now have? This flower has 6 petals.

A bunch of these flowers has 42 petals in total.

How many flowers are in the bunch?
