Today, during math class, Mr. Harbeck and Mr. Bache told us to state how (4÷4) + (4÷4)= 2 is the same as (4/4) + (4/4)= 2.
In my opinion, they mean the exact same thing, so it doesn't really matter which one you use. When typing, it's usually just easier to use "/" since it is right there on the keyboard and you have to type in a code or copy and paste the obelus sign ÷
Also, In fractions, you are dividing the numerator (top number) by the denominator (bottom number).
EXAMPLE: So the fraction three-fourths 3/4 is really 3 divided by 4, which gives you the decimal of 0.75. Same thing with other fractions. For the most part, you don't see fractions written as 3 ÷ 4.
