If the divisor of the dividend is a fraction then the quotient is increased as for example 14 divided by 2 = 7 but 14 divided by 1/2 or 0.5 = 28

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Can the quotient be bigger than the dividend?


Is there a such thing as a remainder being bigger than the quotient?

Yes, certainly. A quotient is the result of division ( a divisor into a dividend). The remainder can be bigger than the quotient, but not bigger than the divisor. For example 130 divided by 20 =6 with remainder of 10. Here 6 is the quotient and remainder is 10, which is bigger than the quotient

If you divide by 100 is the quotient greater than or less than than the dividend?

less than

Why is the quotient larger than the dividend when by a unit fraction?

Because it's a fraction

Why is 376.0 divided by 93's quotient bigger than 376 divided by 93.01's quotient?

It's easier to visualize with smaller numbers. 18 divided by 3 = 6 18 divided by 6 = 3 If the dividend is the same, the smaller the divisor, the larger the quotient.

What is a division problem where the quotient is larger than the dividend?

Any example where the divisor is less than 1 .

Is the quotient for 41 0.8 greater or less than 41explain?

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

When dividing a number which is greater than you by a number less than 1 will the quotient be greater than or less than the dividend?

Dividing a number by a decimal always gives a number greater than the dividend. Some decimal numbers are bigger than 1, eg 506.23 , so the answer is less. The statement "a number greater than you" has no meaning so the question cannot be properly understood.

When you divid a fraction less than 1 by a whole number greater than 1 how does the quotient compare to the dividend?

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.

How do you divide two numbers without division operator?

int dividend,divisor,remainder; int division(int p,int q){ int quotient=1; /*if divisor and diviend are equal then quotient=1*/ if(p==q){ remainder=0; return 1; } /*if dividend is smaller than divisor then remainder=dividend*/ if(p<q){ remainder=p; return 0; } /*shift left till divisor > dividend*/ while(p>=q){ q<<=1; quotient<<=1; } /*shift right for one time so that divisor become smaller than dividend*/ q>>=1; quotient>>=1; /*again call division recurcively*/ quotient+=division(p-q,divisor); return quotient; } int main(){ cout<<"\nEnter dividend:"; cin>>dividend; cout<<"\nEnter divisor:"; cin>>divisor; cout<<"\nQuotient:"<<division(dividend,divisor); cout<<"\nRemainder:"<<remainder; //system("pause"); return 0; }

When a whole number greater than one is divided by a unit fraction less than one the quotient is always greater than the dividend true or false?
