Quotient 0, remainder 805. Note that you will always get this pattern when you divide a smaller number by a larger one - i.e., the quotient will be zero, and the remainder will be the dividend.

Always.

No.

Yes, but this is true of not just unit fractions but any positive number.

no it does not thank you

Unless you are using remainders, no because the divisor may not divide evenly into the dividend you idiots.

No. 2/3 divided by 3/5 = 10/9

The quotient for whole numbers will always be less than or equal to the dividend. It will never be more.

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

Usually, but not always. 1 cubed is 1. Cubed fractions are smaller.

True.

That is simply not true. For example, consider the quotient of 2/9 and 2/3.(2/9) / (2/3) = (2*3)/(9*2) = 3/9 = 1/3 which, unless I am very much mistaken, is not greater than one of the fractions: namely 2/3.

No. The quotient is less than or greater than the dividend, depending on the sign of the fraction.4 / (1/2) = 8, which is greater than 4.4 / (-1/2) = -8, which is smaller than 4.-4 / (1/2) = -8, which is smaller than -4.-4 / (-1/2) = 8, which is greater than -4.

Because it makes the quotient in divisable by multiple cation IN KID WORDS It makes number bigger to add or divide the dividend or the number on the side go into it so always out 000ss! HOPE THIS HELPED, Kelsey

No. Sometimes it is the same as one of them. If you are allowed to simplify the fractions first, you might even get a smaller number, but I'm not sure what your math teacher is going for in your case.

the quotient of an integer and its opposite is never negative.

no

The answer is always positive. If the signs are the same (positive by positive, negative by negative), then the quotient is always positive. If the signs are different (positive by negative, negative by positive), then the quotient is always negative.

No, always positive.

No. The quotient of 2 and 0 is not even defined.

not always,only when you need to

When comparing fractions you must find a common denominator; by finding the least common denominator it will keep the numbers (numerators and denominator) smaller .

Positive.

Fractions! Otherwise you don't have anything to add.

Not always. There are times when division of fractions results in a non-improper fraction.
