U+2298 was added to Unicode in version 1.1 (1993). It belongs to the block Mathematical Operators in the Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Math Symbol and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script.

The glyph is not a composition. It has a Neutral East Asian Width. In bidirectional context it acts as Other Neutral and is mirrored. Its corresponding mirrored glyph is . In text U+2298 behaves as Alphabetic regarding line breaks. It has type Other for sentence and Other for word breaks. The Grapheme Cluster Break is Any.

The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

In mathematics, especially in elementary arithmetic,

division(denoted ÷ or / or —) is an arithmetic operation. Specifically, ifbtimescequalsa, written:

a=b×cwhere

bis not zero, thenadivided bybequalsc, written:

- ÷
For instance,

- 6 ÷ 3 = 2
since

- 3 × 2 = 6.
In the above expressions,

ais called thedividend,bis called thedivisor, andcis called thequotient; in the expression orais also called thenumeratorandbis also called thedenominator.Conceptually, division of integers can be viewed in either of two distinct but related ways quotition and partition:

Partitioninginvolves taking a set of sizeaand formingbgroups that are equal in size. The size of each group formed,c, is the quotient ofaandb.

Quotition, orquotative division(also sometimes spelledquotitive) involves taking a set of sizeaand forming groups of sizeb. The number of groups of this size that can be formed,c, is the quotient ofaandb. (Both divisions give the same result because multiplication is commutative.)Teaching division usually leads to the concept of fractions being introduced to school pupils. Unlike addition, subtraction, and multiplication, the set of all integers is not closed under division. Dividing two integers may result in a remainder. To complete the division of the remainder, the number system is extended to include fractions or rational numbers as they are more generally called.
