I've just realized that the division symbol (÷) represents a fraction where the numerator and denominator are represented as dots.


@espectalll oh, never realized that! 🤨 I always thought it was strange to have two different symbols (÷ and / )

@espectalll I realized that too... in fifth grade or so.

@Vexatos you probably were paying more attention than I did at the time lol

@espectalll that might just be a coincidence: the ÷ symbol was used to represent subtraction in many places
