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)
