[OS X TeX] Division into

I am trying to set up a division and the following almost does it

    \begin{tabular}{@{} cc @{}}
        &    2
        &    8
        &    6

        &    2

I don't require that the vertical line be curved--although I wouldn't 
mind if it did but I would like it to connect with the horizontal one.
When I tried


Console replied

    !You can't use 'spacefactor' in vertical mode.
    1.4836 \setlength\@{0}

And, strange behavior, when I try to copy this, it turns into

    ! Missing $ inserted.
    <inserted text>
    l.4836 \setlength\@{0}

What am I doing wrong?
Do I really have to use the hhline package?
