Divisor : This number is smaller than the dividend. It is after the division sign. While doing the division it is outside. Child should know the table of number which is outside.

The answer we get that you have to write on the top.

Example : 8 ÷ 4

Here 8 is a dividend and 4 is a divisor.

As the number 4 is outside the division sign , so say the table of 4 and stop it as you get the number 8 which is inside the division sign .

4 x 1 = 4

4 x 2 = 8 ----------> Stop

At the 2nd step we got 8 so write 2 at the top and 8 below the inside 8.

Now subtract them so at the last we get zero (0). This is the remainder.

2) 2 ÷ 2 = 1

3) 4 ÷ 2 = 2

4) 5 ÷ 5 = 1

5) 6 ÷ 2 = 3

1) Write 6 inside and 4 outside.

2) Say the table of 4.

3) Find the number which is equal to 6 or less than 6.

4) 4 x 1 = 4 as 4 x 2 = 8 > 6

5) So write 1 at the top and 4 below 6.

6) Subtract them, at last you will get (6 – 4 = 2).

7) Therefore 1 is the answer and 2 is the remainder.
