The question was how to divide a number by 3 without using *, /, +, -, % operators; my answer was to use Pascal's
DIV operator, possibly invoking the Pascal code from C, since the question is tagged C.
I followed the link to the FAQ, and I don't think my answer meets any of the reasons for deletion listed there. It does answer the question as stated. I don't claim that either the question or the answer was of tremendously high quality, but my answer did have 5 upvotes and 1 downvote (the downvote may have been cast before I edited the question).
The question did have a large number of answers, but most of them are valid and distinct from the other answers.
It's been suggested that the question was a bad one, and I don't necessarily dispute that. I suggest that that's irrelevant to the issue of deleting my answer. It's entirely possible to have a good (or at least valid) answer to a bad question.
Why was my answer, along with a number of the other answers, deleted?
