Formula in cell is "=QUOTIENT(9,2)" returns 4.000. Can't change its mind.

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

It does exactly what it is supposed to do. If you check out the QUOTIENT function in Excel help, you will see the following:

Returns the integer portion of a division. Use this function when you want to discard the remainder of a division.

If you are looking for 4.5, simply use:
=9/2
