From Wikipedia:

In mathematics, especially in elementary arithmetic, division is an arithmetic operation which is the inverse of multiplication.

Specifically, if c times b equals a, written:

$c \times b = a\,$

where b is not 0 (number)|zero, then a divided by b equals c, written:

$\frac ab = c$

For instance,

$\frac 63 = 2$

since

$2 \times 3 = 6\,$.

In the above expression, a is called the dividend, b the divisor and c the quotient.
