The quotient is not always a whole number. The quotient can be a whole number or a decimal number. For perfect division, such as 16 ÷ 2 = 8, a quotient is a whole number and for divisions having remainder the quotient is a decimal number. Division example such as 16 ÷ 5 = 3.2 has a decimal number as a quotient.
