## Description of the vector-scalar division

Vectors can be divided by real numbers. The real number is called a scalar to distinguish it from vectors.

A vector is divided by a scalar by dividing the individual elements of the vector by the number. The following is calculated:

$$\displaystyle\left[\matrix{a\\b\\c}\right] / x = \left[\matrix{a/ x\\b / x\\c / x}\right]$$

### Example

$$\displaystyle\left[\matrix{4\\6\\8}\right]/2 = \left[\matrix{4/ 2\\6/2\\8 /2}\right] = \left[\matrix{2\\3\\4}\right]$$
