Answer:

The "quotient" is the result of the division operation.
# 44.8#

Explanation:

For this example:
#22.4/0.5# ;#22.4# is the numerator, and #0.5# is the denominator.

In long-division form it looks like this:
#" Quotient"#
#0.5|bar22.4#

To do a long division we move the decimal point of the denominator to make it a whole number, and move the numerator a corresponding amount to keep it equal.
#5|bar224#
This is like writing the original ratio or fraction form as:
#224/5#
Performing the division we obtain: # 44.8#
