The quotient is less than the fraction.

The answer depends on the sign of the numbers.(1/4) / 2 = 1/8, which is smaller.(-1/4) / 2 = -1/8, which is greater.

True.

I have no idea about the quotation, but the quotient is less than the divisor.

Yes, but this is true of not just unit fractions but any positive number.

Generally, the quotient of a whole number divided by a fraction will be greater than that whole number, because division is simply multiplying the dividend by the reciprocal of the divisor. For instance: 2 / (1/2) = 2 * (2/1)

Greater the divisor is less than 1,so the quotient is greater than the dividend

less than

No. The quotient is less than or greater than the dividend, depending on the sign of the fraction.4 / (1/2) = 8, which is greater than 4.4 / (-1/2) = -8, which is smaller than 4.-4 / (1/2) = -8, which is smaller than -4.-4 / (-1/2) = 8, which is greater than -4.

greater

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

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

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

It will be greater.

If the dividend (the number being divided into) is zero, then there is no change in value as the result is also zero; Otherwise:if the fraction is a proper fraction (the numerator is less than the denominator) then the (absolute) value of the dividend will increase; otherwiseif the fraction is an identity (the numerator equals the denominator) then the value of the dividend will not change; otherwisethe fraction is an improper fraction (the numerator is greater than the denominator) and the (absolute) value of the dividend will decrease.

It will be greater.

The absolute value of the answer will be greater than the absolute value of the original.

Divide the dividend until there is a remainder less than the divisor. The whole number quotient forms the whole number and the remainder over the divisor forms the fraction. Now simplify the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by any common factors (that are greater than 1). The mixed number result is the whole number and the simplified fraction together.

you have to figure it out

When the denominators are the same, whichever one has the greater numerator is greater.

The quotient can be smaller or larger - depending on whether the original was negative or positive. It will be unchanged if it was 0.

Divisor must be greater than 10000/308 ie 33 or more

Yes. For example, 2/3 is greater than 1/3. After reducing to the GCD, the fraction with the larger numerator is the larger number.

By an integer, no. By any proper fraction, yes.
