(div, /)

A division is the inverse of a multiplication. Calcute implements it using either the *div* function or, equivalently, the */* (division) operator. Given three values 'q', 'r' and 's' such that

div(30; 6) 5

In a division, the value being divided is called the "divend". The value by which the dividend is divided is called the "divisor". The result of the division is called the "quotient".
