Dividing by 7

**Division** means breaking a number into smaller, equal groups.

In the last lesson, you learned how to divide numbers by 6.

Now, let’s learn how to divide numbers by 7. 😎

👉 There are **3 ways** to divide a number by 7.

1. Division by **grouping.**

2. Division by **repeated subtraction.**

3. Division by **multiplication**. (the fastest)

You can use any of these methods! 🤗

But in this lesson, let's focus on using your multiplication skills to make division easy.

👉 Let's look at an example.

21 ÷7= ?

Turn any division problem into a **related multiplication problem **in your head quickly!

First, think about it's whole-part diagram:

Can you write a multiplication equation for this same diagram?

Yes!

7 x ? = 21

Do you know what number times 7 equals 21?

Great job! It's 3.

So you figured out that:

21 ÷7=3

**Multiplication and division are opposites** of each other. Once you know multiplication, you also know your division!

It might help to memorize these!

7 ÷ 7 = 1

14 ÷ 7 = 2

21 ÷ 7 = 3

28 ÷ 7 = 4

35 ÷ 7 = 5

42 ÷ 7 = 6

49 ÷ 7 = 7

56 ÷ 7 = 8

63 ÷ 7 = 9

70 ÷ 7 = 10

Great job! Now try the practice!
