And why would you do that? Do you have some context for your question?

I am just saying you can break down multiplication into a*b=a+a+a....

Then you think of division using the same idea. If c=a*b means c=(a+a+a+... b times) then c/a=b also means c=(a+a+a+... b times).

I got on trouble for this post; I really thought that what I asked was legitimate. Those three concrete requirements for posting homework help don't really seem feasible all the time. Maybe they thought it was too vague, but I honestly needed help with that.
