Hey there! I'm afraid the question doesn't make sense. The quotient of an integer and what else? Was the question supposed to read like this? Is the quotient of integers always a rational number? The answer would be yes. We define a rational number to be a number which can be written as a ratio of integers. Example: $$\Large\rm \frac{7}{3}$$ is a rational number. It's two integers being divided. The result is not an integer, but the result IS rational.
