The only possible answer is 0. If you divide any other number by 2 you will always get half that number, as dividing by 2 is the same as multiplying by 1/2.

This is the same as 2 times 3 over 3. You are both multiplying and dividing by 3, so the end answer is 2.

It depends on the numbers. For example, dividing by 1 1/2 (one and a half) is exactly the same as dividing by 3/2, since both represent the same number.In general, if you divide by a larger number, the result will be less.
