[Haskell-beginners] Still confused

Hi Brandon, Darren, and Michael,
Thanks for you responses, but I'm still confused.
Here are two examples of operator sections. The first takes the infix operator
/ and turns it into a prefix operator.
Prelude> let eight_div_by = ((/) 8 )
Prelude> eight_div_by 4
I get that. But look at the following: We now have a prefix operator with
the input on the "wrong" side.
Prelude> let div_by_eight = ( / 8 )
Prelude> div_by_eight 4
Why should ( / 8) 4 = 0.5?
