  Division (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, especially in elementary arithmetic, division is an arithmetic operation which is the inverse of multiplication.
The obelus is also used alone to represent the division operation itself, as for instance as a label on a key of a calculator.
Division can be calculated with an abacus by repeatedly placing the dividend on the abacus, and then subtracting the divisor the offset of each digit in the result, counting the number of divisions possible at each offset.

 AllRefer.com - division, in mathematics (Mathematics) - Encyclopedia
Division may be indicated by the symbol ÷, as in 15 ÷ 3, or simply by a fraction, 15/3.
A division in which the divisor b is larger than the dividend a is simply indicated by the fraction a/b, with no actual operation being carried out.
The division of a by b is equivalent to the multiplication of a by the multiplicative inverse of b, i.e., a ÷ b = a • (1/b) = a • b
