Yes. The line in a fraction can be read as "divided by." When you convert a fraction to a decimal, the decimal is the quotient of the numerator and the denominator.

What is quotient mean in math?

The "quotient" is the solution to a division problem. For example: in the problem 147/7 = 21 147 is the dividend (or numerator,) 7 is the divisor (or denominator,) and 21 is the quotient. If there is anything left over after the division, that would be called the remainder. Note that the terms numerator and denominator are usually used in the context of fractions whereas dividend and divisor are used in the context of division. However, those contexts are equivalent, since fractions are really an expression of a division problem.

What are numbers written as a quotient of two integers where denominator is not 0?

Yes, you can.

Is the quotient of two fractions greater or less than the fractions you srart with?

It is greater as for example 3/4 divided by 1/4 is equal to 3

How would you find the quotient of 2 over 3and 3 over 4?

The quotient of 2/3 is simply 2/3 and the quotient of 3/4 is 3/4 since they are fractions in the most reduced form.

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

That is simply not true. For example, consider the quotient of 2/9 and 2/3.(2/9) / (2/3) = (2*3)/(9*2) = 3/9 = 1/3 which, unless I am very much mistaken, is not greater than one of the fractions: namely 2/3.
