Hi, my name is Brian, and this is how to type the divide symbol. Now apart from the regular keys on the keyboard and the sub keys on your keyboard which you can access by holding down shift there is also a number of different option keys and symbols that you can type just using your keyboard and one of those symbols is the divide symbol. So in order to type that on a Mac, all you have to do is hold down option and then hit forward slash and then I get a divide symbol. On a PC, it's a little different. You have to hold down Alt and then type 0247 on the keypad. Now there are many different options that you can select, there's many different symbols that you can type out and there's a list of them at this website, You can see all sorts of symbols, there's foreign language symbols, there's currency symbols, there's math symbols and they are all different for PCs and Macs so be sure to select the correct system.
