# Thread: Division function in Excel????

1.
I want to have a cell showing the quotient of A2, B2

ex. cell showing result of A2 divided by B2

I can't seem to find a formula that does this....does anyone know.

I feel like this simple formula definitely has to be possible, but I read the whole list of formulas and can't find it.

2. =A2/B2

or am I missing something here?

3. =(a2/b2)

4. Not that you'd necessarily want to, but you could actaully call the function
=QUOTIENT(A2,B2)
instead of using the divison operators as listed above.

5. Thanks....that did work =(A2/B2)
but why isn't it listed on the functions list?

6. Because it's not a function, it's a formula.

7. Because it's not a function, it's an arithetic operator.

8.
For more on operators see the Excel Help topic for "Calculation operators in formulas".
