**Division As Opposite of Multiplication**

**Example :**

There are 12 balls and 3 boxes. Arrange 12 balls equally in the 3 boxes.

**Answer:**

We know that 3 × 4 = 12. So, if 12 balls are divided into three boxes, then each box will contain 4 balls. 12 `÷`

3 = 4.

**Division Using Grid Method:**

Divide 96 by 4.

**Answer:**

Write 96 on the grid and 4 outside the box.

**Long Method of Division for 2-digit Numbers**

**Example :**

**Answer:**

**Fun facts:**
