[Tex/LaTex] Division sign, not divergence


Using \div gives me divergence sign instead of division (รท), for sure inside of math mode.



$ 1 \div 2 $


returns back ;

As far as I know the problem is physics package and without it everything is ok, but I need it.

Probably, the document is using package physics. It redefines the symbol for a different purpose. The old meaning of \div is saved in \divisionsymbol:

\[ 1 \div 2 \]
\[ 1 \divisionsymbol 2 \]
