Load the exponent part and shift it? More practical is if you are repeatedly doing divisions by the same number then store the reciprocal and multiply instead. A divide and multiply takes longer than a divide, but a divide and two multiplies is faster than two divides. So you have to be dividing by the same number at least twice.
