Basic Math Division For Kids

Dear Children,
Let us learn here how to divide numbers.

What is division?

Division is nothing but "splitting" a number in to "equal parts".


Kid, Consider that you are having 2 chocolates in your hand and you have two best friends. How you will share the chocolates equally with your friends?
When you give 1 chocolate to each of your friend then 2 – 2 gives zero, so that both of your friend will have equally 1 chocolate each.
