Forward slash, /, denotes Normal Division.

Backward slash, \, denotes Integer Division where the remainder is discarded.

E.g., 10/3 = 3 + 1/3; BUT 10\3 = 3.

The point is, Math is a language with grammar and syntax that is a large part of its value. You should learn how to write it correctly so you are not misunderstood.
