Let me start by saying the I'm a complete greenhorn when it comes to assembly. My professor seems to think it's a good idea to give us a crash course before our final but anyway. The program gets the dividend and divisor correctly but for some reason div bx
ax/bx gives me an error when I have 10 in ax and 2 in bx. Why is that.
This is driving me up the wall because I did the exact same thing I did in another program and it worked.
