Division is the process of dividing one number by another. It is represented by the ÷ symbol, or the slash (/) (known as "divide"). "Divide" can also be used to as a verb for the process as a whole.

In the order of operations, along with multiplication, division comes first; after fractions in parenthesis and exponents.[1]

For example, 2/2 is 1, while 6,000/8600 is 30/43.[2]
