Worksheet Overview

In this activity,  we will be dividing simple numbers.



If we ask how many groups of 4 you can make from 32 children, you simply divide 32 by 4 and can easily calculate the answer knowing your times tables.



32 ÷ 4 = 8  since we know that 8 × 4 = 32 and that multiplication is the opposite of division.


Let's try another one.


Example 2

We have 20 cats! We want to put the cats into groups of 5. How many groups of 5 will we have?





We need to work out 20 ÷ 5 

We can use our 5 times table here! What do we multiply by 5 to get the answer 20?

4 x 5 = 20, so 20 ÷ 5 = 4

So, we can divide the cats into 4 groups of 5.


Did that make sense?

Knowledge of your times tables will definitely help you with these questions!
