#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be answering division questions for the 2, 5, and 10 times tables.

Let's have a look at some ways we can work them out.

Example 1

First of all, if you know your times tables well, you can just work them out in your head.

10 ÷ 2 =

This question is asking how many 2s are in 10.

The number we are dividing by is what we need to count in (so here it is 2) and the first number is what we need to count up to (which is 10).

So we need to count up in 2s until we reach 10 and count how many 2s it takes.

You can use your fingers to count up:

2, 4, 6, 8, 10.

That was five 2s. It took five 2s to count to 10 so that is our answer!

10 ÷ 2 = 5

Example 2

15 ÷ 5 =

So what can we do if we don't know our times tables?

We can draw a number line to help us count along.

For this question, we need to count in 5s until we get to 15:

We can draw a number line to help us work it out:

- Start on 0

- We need to jump up to 15

- Add on 5 for each jump, until we reach 15:

How many jumps did it take to reach 15? Three.

15 ÷ 5 = 3
