14 divided by two equals what.

This symbol shows that we need to divide to find the answer. And we need to divide 14 by two. Or, in other words, how many twos are there in 14? To help us find the answer, we can use the inverse of division or the opposite. If we read the calculation backwards, we can turn it into a multiplication calculation. Something multiplied by two equals 14. How many twos make 14? We can use our knowledge of the two times table to help.

Let’s count in twos to find the answer. Two, four, six, eight, 10, 12, 14. How many groups of two are there in 14? One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. There are seven groups of two in 14. So we can say seven times two equals 14. And so 14 divided by two equals seven.

We can check our answer by counting in twos on a number line. Two, four, six, eight, 10, 12, 14. Let’s count the jumps of two that we made to find out how many twos there are in 14. One, two, three, four, five, six, and seven. There are seven twos in 14.
