How many times in all your years of attending school did you use the division symbol in some sort of math problem? Like, what, a billion? Did you know that the symbol has an actual meaning? Because I didn’t. And neither, apparently, did thousands and thousands of other people.

Why was this fact never taught to us? Was there some kind of conspiracy among teachers and the American educational system to keep this a secret? I’m not kidding here. I want to know.

Anyway, thanks to one Twitter user, Abdul Dremali, the secret meaning behind the division symbol has now been revealed. Ready to have your mind blown?


 

IT’S SO SIMPLE AND MAKES SO MUCH SENSE. WHY WAS I NEVER TOLD THIS BEFORE?!
