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.
