Know Division Facts for the Three Times Table

In this worksheet, students will recall division facts from the three times table.

Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be learning about how to use the 3 times table facts to solve division problems.


Multiplication and division are inverse operations. 

This means that if you know your 3 times table, you can also divide some numbers by 3 very quickly. 

Let's see how!


We know that 5 × 3 = 15. 

This means that in 15, there are 3 groups of 5 or 5 groups of 3. 


When we know one times table fact, we can write a family of facts by rearranging the numbers:

5 × 3 = 15

3 × 5 = 15

15 ÷ 3 = 5

15 ÷ 5 = 3


This works for all times table facts.

Let's try an example using the 3 times table. 


What is 24 ÷ 3?



We know that 24 is in the 3 times table. 

3 × 8 = 24

So, we can also say that 24 ÷ 3 = 8


Now that you've seen how to use this skill, you are ready to move on to some questions by yourself.
