The quotient increases.

Nothing.

As long as the number is not zero, the quotient remains unchanged. If the multiplier is zero then the quotient is undefined.

Odd numbers do NOT have a factor of 2. When an Even number is divided by an Odd number with no remainder, the prime factors of the divisor cancel out the prime factors of the dividend, but there will be no prime 2 to cancel the prime factor of 2 in the dividend leaving the the quotient to have a factor of 2, and so will be Even. --------------------------------------------------------- Alternatively, consider what happens when you multiply Odd and Even numbers: Odd × Odd = Odd Odd × Even = Even Even × Even = Even The result is Even ONLY if at least one of the numbers multiplied together is Even. Thus if you divide an Even number by an Odd number, the result must be Even. Also consider that Odd times Odd is Odd. Multiplication is the inverse of division, so if you have: dividend ÷ divisor = quotient then dividend = quotient × divisor Now, if the divisor is Odd and the quotient is Odd, the the Dividend MUST be Odd (since Odd × Odd = Odd). Thus if the Dividend is Even and the Divisor is Odd, then the Quotient must be Even.

The decimal point moves 3 places to the right.

Nothing happens, especially. You just get a quotient, which is negative, and which may be correct or incorrect just like any other division problem.

4.625

The quotient is larger than the original fraction.

wht happens if WBC increases?

It gets smaller.

No, the definition of ex-dividend date is trading without the dividend. Any stock purchased "ex-dividend" date is not entitled to the dividend. AND equally as importantly OFFSETTING this - is the insatnt that happens the stock price is reduced by the amiunt of the dividend being paid. NO you cannot "steal" a dividend - that is buy it the day before the divideden gets paid (or ownership date actually) - and sell the day after - all you do is get the dividend and the equally lower stock value.
