Noah said, “When you divide a number by a second number, the result will always be smaller than the first number.”
Jada said, “I think the result could be larger or smaller, depending on the numbers.”
Do you agree with Noah or Jada? Show or explain your reasoning.
When dividing two fractions by each other, the result will be larger. Dividing two whole numbers, however, will always result in a smaller number because you’re taking away a part of the number.
