It can be but need not be.

### How do you write a whole number as imprper fractions?

You cannot: whole numbers and improper fractions are disjoint sets.

### How do you do quotient with fractions?

if you can divide whole numbers, turn the fraction into a whole number by finding its equivalent and replacing the fraction with that equivalent. Then divide the new number which should be whole and you have your answer.

### How do you change a whole number into a proper fraction?

Whole numbers cannot be changed into proper fractions.

### Why does a whole number divided by a fraction less than one have a quotient greater than the whole number dividend?

If you think about it, it makes sense. when you divide a whole number (call that number X) by any number less than it(call that Z), the quotient (answer) is smaller than the first number. For example, 10/2=5, 12/4=3. Also, the lower the Z number is (ignoring if it were 1), the higher the quotient is. Therefore, since fractions are lower than 0, the quotient will be higher than the X number.

### Why decimals and fractions are not considered as integers?

An integer has to be a whole number or its opposite. For example, fractions and decimals cannot be integers. I'm smart (:

### Can a whole number be expressed as a quotient ratio or integers?

Every whole number can be expressed as the quotient or ratio of other whole numbers, and whole numbers ARE integers.

### Where are fractions from?

fractions are parts of a whole number

### Why are all fractions with a numerator of 1 in simplest form?

All fractions with a numerator (top number) of 1 are in simplest form because 1 is the smallest whole number there is and cannot be divided into anything smaller and still be a whole number.

### What is simple fraction?

A simple fraction is a fraction that is a whole number divided by a whole number. Complex fractions can have fractions inside of fractions.

### Why the quotient of two fractions is always greater than either fraction?

the quotient is always greater than the either fraction because any time when you multiply either number with 1 you will get the whole entire universe heheheheh

### Are fraction rational number?

A fraction is a number that expresses part of a whole as a quotient of integers (where the denominator is not zero).A rational number is a number that can be expressed as a quotient of integers (where the denominator is not zero), or as a repeating or terminating decimal. Every fraction fits the first part of that definition. Therefore, every fraction is a rational number.But even though every fraction is a rational number, not every rational number is a fraction.Why? Consider this:Every integer (all the whole numbers, including zero, and their negatives....-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3...) is a rational number, because it can be expressed as a quotient of integers, as in the case of 4 = 8/2 or 1 = 3/3 or -3 = 3/-1 and so on. So integers such as 4 or 1 can be expressed as the quotient of integers.But an integer is not a fraction. 4 is an integer, but it is not a fraction. 4 is not expressed as the quotient of integers. The difference here is in the wording.A fraction is a number that expresses part of a whole. An integer does not express a part. It only expresses a whole number.A rational number is a number that can be expressed as a quotient of integers, or as part of a whole, but fraction is a number that is (must be) expressed as a quotient of integers, or as part of a whole - there is a difference. The difference is subtle, but it is real.In a nutshell, the fractions are a subset of the rational numbers. The rational numbers contain the integers, and fractions don't.Note: Mathematicians do not generally use the term "fractions." They usually only talk about rational numbers. Fractions are more or less a term that is used for pedagogical reasons.It's kind of funny. Someone uses a term not used in math to teach math, then makes up tons of tests about "fractions, improper and proper fractions," etc. and tests you on them, even though they are not mathematical terms. Go figyah!

### What does quotient of two integers mean?

an integer is any whole number for example 1, -1, 72, -72 the quotient is the answer to a division problem so the quotient of 2 integers is one whole number divided by another whole number
