so the sign for division(÷) is unclear and faulty? its not clearly saying divide and the other symbol / does not mean the exact same thing?

The difference in the final result should be nonexistent if the math problem is presented in an adequate form, which isn't the case here. Which reminds me of another thing this thing lacks: more brackets.
i was under the impression that the universal rules were all the same to solve a math equation. you know multiplication and division being equal but i guess your country decided to do math their own way.
