It need not be. The numbers 1/2 and (-1/2) are both fractions less than 1 but their quotient is -1, which is less than both the fractions.

Yes. Consider two negative fractions. Since they are negative, both are less than 1. But their product is positive and so greater than either.

The quotient need not be greater than a whole number less than one!

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

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

You don't. Proper fractions are less than one, improper fractions are greater.

Proper fractions.

greater than

Fractions greater than 1 are to the right of 1 and fractions less than 1 are to its left.

You find the common denominator for both fractions and which ever has the highest numerator is greater.

It will be greater.

The quotient will be less than one.

When you divide a number by a fraction between zero and one, the quotient will be greater than that number.

less than

greater

The quotient is less than the fraction.

The remainder is less than the divisor because if the remainder was greater than the divisor, you have the wrong quotient. In other words, you should increase your quotient until your remainder is less than your divisor!

No, improper fractions (ex: 3/2) are greater than one.

No, they have to be greater than 1

the lower number for the denominator greater the number is.

The quotient will be less. 1/2 ÷ 2 = 1/4
