Is Multiplication faster than division?

In the past, I’ve heard that performance wise, multiplication is done faster than division. This has led me to stick to multiplication in my scripting math (ex. *0.5 instead of /2). I wonder if this is truly the case, or if the difference even matters.

well by what ive seen multiplication is a tad faster. however given that the pc is doing all the calculations using division wouldnt really make too much difference. cos you know its a computer that does math quickly. (The difference will be unnoticable)

If you are doing tons of complex math, then perhaps consider this, if not I wouldnt worry too much.

tl;dr it does not matter, use whatever is most clear to you

ps: in luau this should matter even less
