I really like this problem! I actually got a different answer by dividing 123/9 which is 13 2/3. I’m going to share this with some teachers tomorrow and I may add something along the lines as “without a remainder”.

Never mind! I just read the problem again alittle more carefully and saw the words “whole number quotient”! Great problem, thanks!
