Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

We can use multiplication tables to solve division problems.

 

Example

This flower has 5 petals.

A bunch of these flowers have 35 petals between them.

 

How many flowers are in the bunch?

 

Answer

We need to think of where 35 comes in the 5 times table.

You should know that   7 × 5 = 35.

 

35 ÷ 5 = 7

 

7 flowers will have 35 petals.
