from what I can tell you are using * for division (over).

Usually / is used for division and * is used for multiplication.

So I will interpret as follows ...

846/2=(...+40+...)/2=(800 over ...+...over2+6 over...)=(400+...+3)...=...

846/2=(800+40+6)/2

=(800 over 2+40 over 2+6 over 2)

=(400+20+3)

=423

846*2=(800+40+6)*2

=(800*2 +40*2 +6*2

= 1600 + 80 + 12 = 1692

I don't know why the word "over" appears.

It shouldn't.
