## Can the quotient be greater than the dividend?

Dividing by 1 gives a quotient equal to the dividend. **When the divisor is less than 1, the quotient is larger than the dividend**. Decreasing the divisor to 1/2 increases the quotient to 10 1/2 . When the divisor is smaller than the dividend, the quotient is more than 1.

## Is quotient always smaller than the dividend?

The quotient is the result of a division process and the product is the result of the multiplication process. The quotient is **smaller than the dividend** and the divisor.

## Can the dividend be smaller than the divisor?

Whenever the dividend is less than the divisor, **the quotient is always zero** which results in the modulus simply being equal to the dividend. As long as they’re both positive, the remainder will be equal to the dividend.

## What happens to the quotient when the divisor is much smaller than the dividend?

Students should notice that dividing by a number much smaller than the dividend results **in a large quotient** and that dividing by a number much larger than the quotient results in a small quotient.

## Why is the quotient smaller than the dividend?

and a strip diagram to explain why this is true. 1. When a whole number is divided by a unit fraction, the quotient is a whole number greater than the dividend. … **When a unit fraction is divided by a whole number**, the quotient is a unit fraction less than the dividend.

## Why does quotient Get Smaller?

Explanation: The word quotient comes from the Latin “quotiens” meaning “how many times?”. … If given a dividend and divisor, you came up with a remainder at least as large as the divisor, then you **could fit at least one more copy of the divisor**, making the quotient at least one larger and the remainder smaller.

## Is remainder always less than quotient?

Properties of Remainder:

The **remainder is always less than the divisor**. If the remainder is greater than the divisor, it means that the division is incomplete. It can be greater than or lesser than the quotient. For example; when 41 is divided by 7, the quotient is 5 and the remainder is 6.

## Which is always smaller than the divisor?

ANSWER: **REMAINDER** IS ALWAYS LESS THAN THE DIVISOR BECAUSE REMAINDER IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE DIVISOR AND THAT PART OF THE DIVIDEND UNEVENLY DIVIDED BY THE DIVISOR.. HOPE , IT IS HELPFUL TO!!

## Where is the dividend divisor and quotient?

The number that is being divided (in this case, 15) is called the dividend, and the number that it is being divided by (in this case, 3) is called the divisor. **The result of the division is the quotient**.
