Problem Solution:

In this program, we will read two integer numbers from the user. Then we will divide a number from a number without using the "/" operator.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to divide a number from another number without using the division "/" operator is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```# Ruby program to divide a number from another number
# without using division "/" operator

print "Enter number1: ";
num1 = gets.chomp.to_i;

print "Enter number2: ";
num2 = gets.chomp.to_i;

quotient = 0;

if num1 < 0
num1 = -num1 ;
if num2 < 0
num2 = - num2 ;
else
negResult = true;
end
elsif num2 < 0
num2 = - num2 ;
negResult = true;
end

while num1 >= num2
num1 = num1 - num2 ;
quotient = quotient + 1 ;
end

if negResult == true
quotient = -quotient ;
end

print "Result: ",quotient;
```

Output:

```Enter number1: 21
Enter number2: 3
Result: 7
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we read two integer numbers from the user. Then we divided an input number from another number without using the "/" operator and printed the result.
