R1 – Division – Definition

What is R1 Division?

R1 Division is the inverse of R1 multiplication. The result of division  of an operand by an operator is described by a math expression. Multiplying the operator with the result gives the operand. For example:

  • 12^/4v = 3v
    • Here 12^ is the operand, 4v the operator and 3v the result
    • Operator * Result = Operand
      • 4v*3v = 12^

  • 12^/4 = 3^
    • Here 12^ is the operand, 4 the operator and 3^ the result.
    • Operator * Result = Operand
      • 4*3^ = 12^

It is a scalar type operation that takes into account the Opposite Signs. As the inverse of multiplication, it requires the reversal of both the circular motion through imaginary space and the linear motion along the number line.

The inverse of the scalar part of the operation works the same as division in classical maths. For example:

  • for 12^/4v = 3v, the scalar part is 12/4 = 3

The inverse of the circular motion is worked out using the division table for R1 below.

So, for 12^/4v = 3v

  • 12/4 = 3
  • 1^/1v = 1v
  • So, combining the two, 12^/4v = 3v


In R1 division, the divisor is the Operator and the numerator is the Operand. The result takes its Opposite Sign from the division table. For example: 12^/4v = 3v. Here 4v is the operator, 12^ is the operand and 1^/1v in the division table gives a result of 1v. The Operator can be an Opposite Value or it can be a Counter. The Operand can only be an Opposite Value. For example: 6^/2 = 3^.

Division by 0 is undefined.

R1 Division Table

The R1 division table is derived from the R1 Multiplication table. For example:

  • 1^*1^ = 1^
    • Remember that the format of multiplication is Operator * Operand
    • So, dividing both sides by the Operator gives
      • 1^ = 1^/1^

  • 1^*1v = 1v
    • Dividing both sides by the Operator gives
      • 1v = 1v/1^

  • 1v*1^ = 1v
    • Dividing both sides by the Operator gives
      • 1^ = 1v/1v

  • 1v*1v = 1^
    • Dividing both sides by the Operator gives
      • 1v = 1^/1v



A Counter cannot be divided into another Counter as a stand alone calculation because the result of any calculation has to be an Opposite Value. Terms can be divided by Counters.

Division by Counters operates on the individual Opposite Value elements. For example:

  • (6^ + 9v)/3 = (2^ + 3v)
  • As 3*(2^ + 3v) = (6^ + 9v)
