yes

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

less than

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.

Any example where the divisor is less than 1 .

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

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.

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; }

True.
