a) Division by a number means subtracting that number repeatedly.

For example, to find 15 ÷ 3, subtract 3 from 15 repeatedly till you get a zero.

15 3 = 12,       12 3 = 9,       9 3 = 6,       6 3 = 3,       3 3 = 0

We have subtracted 3 from 15, 5 times to reach at zero.

So, 15 ÷ 3 = 5.

b) Multiplication and division are inverse operations. Multiplication is used to put equal groups together, and division separates one group into several equal groups.

For example: ds

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
