The / mathematical operator performs decimal point division on a numerical value.


Syntax

return_value = number / divisor


Description

  • Number value can be any literal or variable numerical type.
  • Divisor (second value) must not be a value of 0 to .5. This will create a "Division by zero" error! due to CINT rounding.
  • Return values can be any literal or variable numerical type, but SINGLE or DOUBLE type decimal point returns are likely.
  • Values returned may be expressed using exponential or scientific notation using E for SINGLE or D for DOUBLE precision.
  • Use the \ integer division operator to guarantee INTEGER or LONG return values.
  • Division and multiplication operations are performed before addition and subtraction in QBasic's order of operations.
