I am learning how to simplify expressions, how do you find out how to use the divsion symbol on the computer?

Hi Gavin,

I you are using Microsoft excel, the division symbol is /. Therefore the excel formula construction would be: =50/10. The is answer is obviously 5. another way to illustrate, if the number 50 is in cell A1. =A1/10. Also =(5*4)+50/5 will equal 30, following the rule of Multiply, Divide, Add, then Subtract; the formula will multiply (5*4) first, then divide (50/5), then add the result. Hope this was helpful. Let me know.

Warren K.
