How can you use a multiplication fact to find a division fact?

Report as

Any two factors used to find a product can also be used to divide that same product. For example, 7 x 3 = 21, which automatically tells us that 21 / 3 = 7, or that 21 / 7 = 3.

Well, let's take a simple multiplication fact: 2x2=4

Now, just change the symbols, and you've got a division fact: 2=24

Just flip the question around and use a division sign instead of multiplication sign:
2x2=4

4'/.2=2
