Hi,
So, this is embarrassing.
I figure this is the best forum to ask this.
I was never good at math (at all!) and i can't even remember how to do a simple division problem.
And i don't see a division symbol on my computer calculator.
I need to divide 31 into \$1150.00
Thank you.

The division simple could be a slash like this "/"

and why do you need to know this? you're most likely "up to something" aren't you?

Given that OP is from Santa Cruz, I'm guessing he/she bought \$1150 worth of pot, and needs to divide it among 30 friends and themself.

Close one. But the OP is collecting rent from all 30 family members living in the same home. Again...Santa Cruz

She (I took the time to look at her info) probably just wanted to know what her daily cost for rent/mortgage comes out to.

You probably have a calculator on your computer. On my keyboard, there is a button I can hit to bring it up.
