161 can be divided into several numbers. If you're looking for a whole number, one answer could be 23. Therefor, the quotient would be 7.

No. 15 divided by 5 = 3

805 and 1/ 3rd

The quotient of two nonzero integers is the definition of a rational number. There are nonzero numbers other than integers (imaginary, rational non-integers) that the quotient of would not be a rational number. If the two nonzero numbers are rational themselves, then the quotient will be rational. (For example, 4 divided by 2 is 2: all of those numbers are rational).

If a negative is divided by a positive, the resulting quotient will be negative. If a negative is divided by another negative, the quotient would be positive.

It would be a positive number. A negative number divided by a negative number would be positive. A positive number divided by a positive number would also be positive. So, the quotient of 2 integers with the same sign will be a positive number, regardless of which sign the two numbers had.

The quotient is the result of dividing two numbers. So if you need to find the quotient of 20 and 5, you would divide 20 by 5. That means that your answer (4) would be the quotient.

when your doing long division and you get lazy. lolololol

Suppose you are asked to evaluate a quotient like 923/462. You have several options. You could choose 900 and 500 as compatible numbers for the two given numbers and then your estimated quotient would be 900/500 = 1.8. Or You could choose 920 and 460 as the compatible numbers for them and then your estimated quotient would be 920/460 = 2.0. So the question is essentially, what compatible numbers did you pick and using them, what was the quotient. There is no correct answer to picking compatible numbers. Any estimation is a trade-off between simplicity and accuracy. Incidentally, a more accurate answer is 1.9978 (approx), but even that is not perfect!

No. Let's say you have 500 divided by 2. Your quotient would be 250.

90.6667

87.4

That would be the numerator. The numerator is above the denominator. The numerator divided by the denominator would be equal to the quotient. So, numerator/denominator = quotient

Suppose at some point in your life you wanted to know the answer of 29 divided by 14. If you can estimate in your head that 30 divided by 15 is 2, you would expect the answer to be somewhere around two. Since 14 is a little less than half, you would expect the answer to be a little bit more than two. The actual answer of 29/14 is 2.07.

Any number, including 65, can be divided by any other number, but the quotient may or may not be a whole number. If you're looking for a number by which 65 can be divided that will give you a quotient that is a whole number, that would be either 5 or 65.
