The quotient need not be greater than a whole number less than one!

It is considered an inequality.

When you divide a number by a fraction between zero and one, the quotient will be greater than that number.

It is x/9 - 7.

9

It will be greater.

The quotient is less than the fraction.

14

9

Any number below 6 has a quotient less than 1.

n/16 - 3

The quotient will be less. 1/2 ÷ 2 = 1/4

they are the same they are both 9

-5

n/34 - 5

2/x - 9

X = number. 5/X - 12 ======

greater

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.

What would happen if the quotient were less than one is that the number would become a decimal. It's basic fifth grade math.

You will get a quotient that is a positive number less than 10.

Every number is divisible by 4. A number less than 4 gives a quotient less than 1 when divided by 4. A number greater than 4 gives a quotient greater than 1 when divided by 4. 4 divided by 4 = 1.

The quotient is the result of dividing two numbers. So 3 doesn't have a quotient unless another number is being involved in the division. The 4 is not that number since it is substracted from the quotient you get afterwards. Examples: 4 less than the quotient of 9 and 3 would be -1 (9/3=3; 3-4=-1) 4 less than the quotient of 6 and 3 would be -2 (6/3=2; 2-4 = -2)

Seven and a half (:
