Division must be proven with Multiplication in reverse:
6 2n = 3/n
3/n * 2n = 6

6 2n = 3n ?? 3n * 2n = 6n^2

6n 2n =
(n+n+n+n+n+n) (n+n) =
[(n+n) (n+n) (n+n)] (n+n) =
3(n+n) (n+n) = 3

6n 2n = 6n (2n) = 3
obelus is a grouping symbol in itself.
Let n = 2+1. Ans: 1

I am having a hard time finding any references that say 6 / 2n = 3n ....
