What is vector division?

My question is: We have addition, subtraction and muliplication of vectors. Why cannot we define vector division? What is division of vectors?

Aaron B.

When you say "multiplication of vectors", are you referring to the scalar (dot) product, or the cross product? Normally, division is thought of as multiplication by the multiplicative inverse of something (the same way subtraction is thought of as addition by the additive inverse of something). The answer to your question depends on what kind of vector multiplication you are referring to.
