so when you divide a number by something larger, you get an answer that is less than 1. Just like if you have 4 slices of pizza to share evenly between 5 people. Does anyone get a whole slice? no. that would be 4/5 = 0.8 or so. So if 22>16 then 16/22 <1

That means that the fraction 16/22 is less than 1. You are trying to divide the number 16 into 22 equal parts. the equal part would be less than one since you are dividing by a number greater than 16. 16/16 = 1 16/15>1 16/17<1 16/22<1
