- In mathematics, especially in elementary arithmetic, division (÷) is an arithmetic operation.
- Another basic view of division is sharing equally.

**Example:**Danesse has 3 friends. She has 12 cookies to share with them. How many cookies does each of the four people get?

- Danesse probably shared her cookies by saying one for you, one for you, so on. Thus the 12 cookies are shared equally by four people, and each gets three cookies.
- Or, you might say that the 12 cookies have been partitioned into four sets of the same size.

**Exercises:**- 21 ÷ 3 = ________
- 24 ÷ 4 = ________

- 32 ÷ 8 = ________
- 24 ÷ 8 = ________
- 54 ÷ 6 = ________
- 72 ÷ 6 = ________
- 27 ÷ 9 = ________
- 72 ÷ 9 = ________
