**Block Category:** Arithmetic

**Inputs:** Real or complex scalars, vectors, or
matrices.

•**l:** numerator *x*_{1}.

•**r:** denominator *x*_{2}. If r = 0 or is unconnected,
Embed displays a “Divide by 0” message and highlights the offending block in
red.

**Description:** The / block generates the quotient of
the input signals. To perform matrix inversions, use the invert block.

**Label:** Indicates a user-defined block label that appears when
**View > Block Labels** is activated.

**1. Division of two scalar inputs**

Consider the equation *y* = 24/32 realized as:

**2. Division of a vector by a scalar**

Consider the equation:

*y* = *x*/24

where *x* = [12 24 36]
realized as:

When the simulation runs, the / block divides each element of vector x with the constant value of 24.

**3. Division of vectors**

Consider the equation:

*w* = *x/y*

where *x *= [12 24 36] and *y* = [6 12 18]
realized as:

When the simulation runs, the / block performs an
element-by-element division operation on the incoming vectors. For example,
*w*(1) = *x*(1)/*y*(1), *w*(2) = *x*(2)/*y*(2),
and so on.
