Basic division facts will help you solve any division problem.  You can use the multiplication facts you already know.  They will help you find the quotient of each division fact.

6 X 2 = 12therefore12 -:- 2 = 6or5 X 3 = 15therefore15 -:- 5 = 3

Rules for dividing by 0.

Rule 1.

0 divided by any number (except 0) equals 0.

Examples:

0 -:- 3 = 0

0 -:- 9 = 0

0 -:- 5 = 0

Rule 2.

You cannot divide by 0.

Example: 3 -:- 0 is impossible to do.

Rules for dividing by 1.

Rule 1.

Any number (except 0) when divided by itself equals 1.

Examples:

3 -:- 3 = 1

7 -:- 7 = 1

9 -:- 9 = 1

Rule 2.

Any number divided by 1 equals that number.

Examples:

8 -:- 1 = 8

3 -:- 1 = 3

4 -:- 1 = 4

Multiplying or dividing any number by one results in the same number.  Multiplying by zero results in zero, as does dividing zero by any number.

Dividing 1 by any number results in a smaller number.  Division by zero, however, is not defined.  In standard mathematics this operation results in error.
