# Division using Reverse Multiplication

We will learn how to do division using reverse multiplication.

1. Let us divide 6 by 2.

 Recall the multiplication table of 2.How many twos are 6?3 twos are 6.As 3 × 2 = 6, 6 ÷ 2 = 3. Recall1 × 2 = 22 × 2 = 43 × 2 = 64 × 2 = 85 × 2 = 10

2. Divide 20 by 5.

 Recall the multiplication table of 5.How many fives are 20?4 fives are 20.As 4 × 5 = 20, 20 ÷ 5 = 4. Recall1 × 5 = 52 × 5 = 103 × 5 = 154 × 5 = 205 × 5 = 25

3. Divide 30 by 5.

 Recall the multiplication table of 5.How many fives are 30?6 fives are 30.As 6 × 5 = 30, 30 ÷ 5 = 6. Recall1 × 5 = 52 × 5 = 103 × 5 = 154 × 5 = 205 × 5 = 256 × 5 = 307 × 5 = 358 × 5 = 40
