The divide operation will take its two numerical operands and produce the quotient as its result. It operates on reals, complex and integer values. Also, you can combine reals with complex values and reals with integer values. The result will be a complex or integer value respectively.

Also, you can divide a matrix or vector by a real or complex value. The result will be a matrix or vector with the same dimension as the input with each value divided by the real or complex value.

If the inputs both arrays, then they must meet these criteria:

• Array2 must be a square matrix
• Array1 can be a vector. If it is a vector then it is treated just like a matrix with one column and N rows where N is the number of values in the vector.
• Array1 and Array2 must have the same number of rows.

The result will have the same dimensions as Array1. Also, if Array1 is a vector, the result will be a vector. Otherwise, it will be a matrix.

The result Array3 is the solution to the equation which looks like this:

Array2 × Array3 = Array1

If a solution cannot be found, the calculator will present an infinite result error.
