The division operator, / (forward slash character), returns the argument before it divided by the argument after it.

$MyNumber = 3/4 

By default, up to 5 decimal places are returned, so:

$MyNumber = 10/3 

results in $MyNumber having a value of 3.33333.

Be aware the forward slash character has many other symbolic meanings (POSIX folder delimiter, linguistic use e.g. 'and/or', date component delimiters, etc.). Be careful to ensure to quote or escape the / character where you do not want Tinderbox to assume a division.
