Topic: Division Sign
Summary
The Division Sign, which I've also read has been called the obelus (or in it's plural form: obeli) is used to mark Mathematical Division.
For example....
10 ÷ 5 = 2
The symbol is a horizontal bar with a dot slightly above slightly below the center of the horizontal bar and and another dot slightly below the center of the horizontal bar. (The 2 dots line up vertically.)
HTML
The division symbol can be created in HTML with "÷ ". For example....
10 ÷ 5 = 2
Other Symbols For Division
Other symbols exist for division. Like the Long Division Symbol, the Solidus, and a horizonal line.
So, for example, all of these are equivalent....
10 ÷ 5
5 ) 10
10 / 5
10⁄5
^{10}⁄_{5}
Note, if you want to use Fraction like notation in HTML, you can use the "⁄ ". For example....
10⁄5
Really though, if you want to make it look like a Fraction, you need to th HTML sup Element and HTML sub Element too. For example....
<sup>10</sup>⁄<sub>5</sub>
