The quotient is less than the fraction.

greater

It will be greater.

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

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

divide

no

A fraction or a quotient.

If you divide the fraction by a number greater than 1 then you will have a smaller fraction.If you divide the fraction by a number equal to 1 then you will have the same fraction.If you divide the fraction by a positive number smaller than 1 then you will have a greater fraction.

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)

Invert the fraction and multiply.

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

The quotient is always greater than the whole number. Why? Because it takes more to add up a smaller number than a bigger number. I hope this makes sense.. I'm really stupid XD

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.

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

No

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

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.

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

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.

Given an improper fraction (a fraction greater than 1), we divide the numerator by the denominator. The quotient is the whole number part of the mixed number. The remainder is the numerator of the fraction part. The denominator is the same as the denominator of the original fraction. For example: Given the fraction 17/5. 17 divided by 5 is 3 with a remainder of 2. The answer is 3 2/5.

It is called division. A fraction is a shorthand display of the operation, and the end result of it is a quotient.

I'm so not sure can someone help me?

A quotient is the answer when you divide 2 numbers. For example if you divide 72 by 3, you get 24 as a quotient.
