# Basic Math Operations Worksheets

The four common starting points of math help us in just about every quantitative based situation we could possibly get ourselves into. The serve as the foundation to just about all levels of mathematics. Regardless of the branch of math that you are working on, these operations will have some place. They are the glue of all forms of mathematics. These cover all the skills that overlap in the math standards.
There are plenty of them too. We will be adding tons of sections
that focus solely on addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication.
For now a number of skills are just mashed together here. Make

### What are the Basic Math Operations?

Basic mathematical operations entail four operations, namely, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. These four operations are applicable to widely in elementary and advanced mathematics. Thus, mastering these operations is essential for developing a better understanding of mathematics.
**Addition** - The addition is the basic mathematical operation that represents the total amount or sum objects when put together. You can look at it as counting up. Just finding the largest number and then count up by the other number that you are given. In its basic form, addition combines two amounts into a single amount. For example, if you have 3 chocolates and your friend has 4 chocolates. If you combine both the collections of chocolates, you will get one collection or group of 7 chocolates. To write it mathematically,
3 + 4 = 7.
**Subtraction** - Subtraction is the exact opposite of addition. Subtraction is used to know the number of remaining objects when a particular is taken out of a group. You can also look at it as counting down. Pick the larger value and count down the value of the other integer that you are given. You will often hear that the result of this is called the difference. For example, you have 7 chocolates and you give 3 chocolates to your friends. How many chocolates do you have now? The answer is 4. To represent mathematically,
7 - 3 = 4
**Multiplication** - Multiplication of two values is the same as the addition of the numbers to itself as much as the value of other numbers. For example, you have 5 groups of chocolates and each group has 3 chocolates. one way is to find the answer is:
3 chocolates + 3 chocolates + 3 chocolates+ 3 chocolates +3 chocolates = 15 chocolates
Well, this might take up more time than simply multiplying the numbers:
5 groups of chocolates x 3 chocolates in each group= 15 chocolates in total.
**Division** - The division is essentially the opposite of multiplication. A good way to look at it is to share groups into areas. Dividing anything is simply splitting objects or group of objects into a fixed number of parts. For example, you have 12 chocolates that you want to share equally among 4 friends. So how many chocolates each of your friends will get?
12 chocolates / 4 friends = 3 chocolates. That means each of your friends will get 3 chocolates.
