8x1=8

8x2=16

8x3=24

8x4=32

8x5=40

8x6=48

8x7=56

8x8=64

8x9=72

So looking at this table 16 divided by 8 is 2.

64 divided by 8 is 8 and so on and so forth. Apply your multiplication tables like this to get a good feel of things. This is of course simple division. If you need more help post some of your problems
