No, it is not possible to divide 15 by a mixed number and get a quotient that is greater than 15.

It will be greater.

No. A mixed number is greater than 1 since it has a non-zero whole number (which is at least 1) and a fraction (which is greater than 0); any number divided by a number greater than 1 will be less than the original number. So 15 divided by a mixed number will be less than, not greater than, 15.

Mixed numbers are greater than proper fractions.

I assume that by a mixed number you mean a number of the form ab/c where a is an integer greater than 0 (otherwise the number would be a simple fraction), the answer is No.

Mixed numbers are greater than proper fractions.

Any fraction in which the top is greater than the bottom number can be converted to a mixed number.

Yes. Because an example of this would be 15 ÷ 4 2/3. To solve you would turn 4 2/3 to 14/3 and 15 to 15/1. Then u multiply to get 210/3. 210/3 simplified is 70. And 70 is greater than 15 so yes, yes u can divide by a mixed number to get a quotient greater than 15. If you came to the conclusion that no you can not. Did you test your reasoning?
