2 Dividing in your head
To divide one number into another without using a calculator you need to know basic multiplications up to 10. This means that you need to know, by heart, what result you get if you multiply (times) any number up to 10 by any other number up to 10. For example you have to remember that 9 multiplied by 6 is 54, or 4 multiplied by 5 is 20, and so on.
If you are confident that you know the basic multiplications up to 10, just carry on with the rest of this course. If you are unsure, or would like some practice to help you remember them, go now to the last section of this course (Appendix: multiplication tables) by following the link on the left. Then return here to continue.
