How to do division in postgresql without it being truncated?

    Hello, my problem is how to do division in postgresql without it being truncated to an integer. The case here is: 3/2 should be 1.5 but the result is 1. I have checked the documentation and it says that the / operator truncates the result to an integer. So, is there another operator or function that does division without the result being truncated to an integer?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
