Many people these days think that as well as learning tables, children should learn their division facts. So they will know the 5 times table:
1 x 5 = 5, 2 x 5 = 10, 3 x 5 = 15 etc
but they should also know 15 divided by 5 = 3 etc.
The questions also look at finding tenths of numbers (divide by 10) and finding numbers which are half way between two consecutive numbers. Getting these correct will show a good understanding of number.
