Division in Excel

The Division is used to divide the numbers in Excel cell, columns or rows. To do division we can use forward slash (/) arithmetic operator. there is no specific formula or function to divide the values in Excel.

In the previous tutorial Subtraction in Excel, we already remembered our school days basic mathematics calculations.

In the same way, here also we can apply a forward slash (/) sign to do division in Excel.

In Excel, you can use cell references to divide the numbers instead of giving actual numbers.

Note:- Before starting any Formula or Function you need to add (=).

Division Syntax:- =(number1/number2) or =number1/number2

Division Examples:

Division in a Single Cell:

In the below example, numbers are divided in a single cell using (/) slash symbol.
