  1. Usually we do a division of small numbers by the inverse of multiplication, namely we look for what number multiplied by 8 gives 24. Since 8*3=24, we conclude that 24 divided by 8 is 3.

    In your curriculum does not, or has not yet included the multiplication table, here's a conceptual illustration of division:

    1. Make a diagram of 24 objects, in this case, I will use X.

    XXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXX
    XXXX

    represents 24.

    Now divide the objects into groups of eight:

    XXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXX

    The 24 objects subdivides into 3 groups of 8 objects each, and also represents 24.

    Thus 24 divided by groups of 8 gives 3 groups, or the division of 24 by 8 is 3.
