How Using Images Can Help You Learn How to Divide - If you’re just starting your academic math journey with division, then it is highly recommended that you make use of visual aid. You might be wondering why? Drawing a picture can help you understand division problems far better. First, draw the same number of boxes as the number of divisors. Then you should move from one box to another adding in a dot that represents one of the total dividends. The number that you have each box is the answer. Let's try understanding that with an example. The picture below we are trying to solve 20 / 4 =? We have drawn 4 boxes. We start putting in the 20 dots taking one box at a time. We end up with 5 dots in each box. The number is 5. You can always check your answers through multiplication. Just take the quotient or the answer then just multiply with the divisor. The result you will get will be the dividend. These worksheets and lessons will help bring division to life for students.
