Worksheet Overview

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?

 

Answer

You should know that   11 × 5 = 55.

 

55 ÷ 5 = 11

 

11 flowers will have 55 petals.
