# The 4 Basic Operations of Primary School Maths

Primary school maths is the foundational unit of solid living. On regular days, our activities revolve around these 4-most basic operations of mathematics.

1. Addition: Addition is the simple summation of the total stuff available. It gives the count and is a mathematical operation that combines individual items into a larger collection. Represented by ‘+‘.

Example: If Ana has 2 chocolates and’s aunt gifted Ana 2 more chocolates then the lucky child Ana has a total of 2+2=4 chocolates.

1. Subtraction:The mathematical operation represented by ‘-‘ is used to calculate the cut down in the number of articles.

Example: If Ana now has 4 chocolates and she ates 3 out of them together. So she is left with 4-3=1 chocolate.

1. Multiplication: The higher standard of the mathematical operation now is ‘×’ which shows the increased number of articles. It is the advanced form of addition and it simplifies the addition.

Example: If Ana’s aunt has given her 5 chocolates each 30 minutes 5 times. Then instead of adding 5 several times. We can use multiplication operations.

So now the total number of chocolates she has is 5×5=25 chocolates.

1. Division: Represented by‘÷’ This technique of primary school induces the concept of sharing and caring. Let us understand with an example how.

Example: If Ana has 25 chocolates and she has 4 friends with whom she wants to share her chocolates in equal quantity along with feeding herself. So she can simply use this concept of primary mathematics:

25÷5= 5.

The explanation of these 4 basic operations of mathematics can’t be simpler than this. Primary school mathematics is based on these techniques which are as simple as explained with the examples. Primary school maths applies to people of all ages. Make sure your kid understands the concepts transparently with ease and can solve the assessment with/without assistance.

Practice questions:

1. 25+25?
2. 45-32?
3. 06+54?
4. 2×54?
5. 72÷9?
6. 2+2+5+7?
7. 37-2-24?
8. 34÷2?
9. 4×3?
10. 64÷8?

Can your kid now solve this assessment easily? I hope now your kid will be able to learn these primary school maths operations easily and will find an interest in maths.
