Division--binary                                (Mathematical)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Syntax

<nNumber1> / <nNumber2>

Type

Numeric

Operands

<nNumber1> is the dividend of the division operation.

<nNumber2> is the divisor of the division operation.

Description

The division operator (/) returns a numeric value from the division of
<nNumber1> by <nNumber2>.

Note:  Dividing <nNumber1> with zero value for <nNumber2> results in
a runtime error.

Examples

.  This example shows division results to 16 decimal places,
using different operands:

SET DECIMALS TO 16
?  3 /  0            // Result: Runtime error
?  3 / -2            // Result: -1.500000000
? -3 /  2            // Result: -1.500000000
? -3 /  0            // Result: Runtime error
? -1 / -3            // Result: +0.333333333
? -2 /  3            // Result: -0.666666667
?  2 / -3            // Result: -0.666666667
?  1 / -3            // Result: -0.333333333
