Dividing Two-Digit Numbers (Middle School)

Directions: Using the digits 1 to 9 at most one time each, fill in the boxes to make the smallest (or largest) quotient.


What does the number on the left represent?  What does the number on the right represent?


Answers will vary depending on whether decimal answers are allowed. 98 ÷ 12 is one answer for the largest quotient.  12 ÷ 98 is the smallest positive quotient and -98 ÷ 12 is the smallest negative quotient.

Note: This problem’s difficulty can be adjusted by altering the number of digits (boxes), picking smallest or largest, or by picking either a positive, negative, or both.
