a negative x a negative= a positive, a positive x a positive= a positive, a negative x a positive= a negative, and a positive x a negative= a negative. Same thing with division. a negative divided by a negative= a positive, a positive divided by a positive= a positive, a negative divided by a positive= a negative, and a positive divided by a negative is a negative. U see?

Multiplying is the opposite of dividing, whether it be using integers or other numbers and variables. Technically, multiplying and dividing integers is different, but the two processes are very strongly related to each other. For example, if one multiplies two and two together, one gets four as an answer. If one then divides four by two, one gets two. The multiplication of the 2 was reversed by the division of the 2.

Integers are whole numbers. Dividing integers is simply dividing whole numbers. Dividing 9 by 3 is dividing two integers, as is dividing 28 by 7. Dividing integers is one of the easiest of math problems you will encounter suring school.

i dunno if this is the answer youre looking for. negative x negative = positive negative x positive = negative positive x positive = positive same thing with dividing integers its really simple.

It's a positive number. Here's the rule: In multiplication and division . . . -- If both numbers have the same sign, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is positive. -- If the two numbers have different signs, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is negative.

Adding integers, if they have the same sign, add their absolute values and keep the same sign. Subtracting, change the sign of the 2nd number and the add using rules of addition. Multiplying and dividing, Divide the absolute values, if the signs are the same the answer is positive, if the signs are different the answer is negative.

No, it's not the same. Multiplying by 0.1 would be the same as dividing by 10. Dividing by 100 is the same as multiplying by 0.01.

Like signs give a positive answer. Unlike signs give a negative answer.

The inverse of multiplying is dividing, so dividing by 2.

Because multiplying or dividing them by the same NON-ZERO number does not alter their ratio.

Details about multiplying and dividing rational number involves modeling multiplying fractions by dividing squares to equal segments and then overlap the squares.

The inverse operation of Multiplying is Dividing.

The rules are not the same.Multiplication is commutative whereas division is not.Multiplication is associative whereas division is not.

Dividing by a non-zero rational number is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal.

The product or quotient of two numbers that have the same sign is positive. The product or quotient of two numbers with different signs is negative.

In every possible way- because whole numbers and integers are the same.

When dividing numbers that are different the answer will be negative.

All integers belong to the set {..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. The absolute value of any integer results in a whole number {0, 1, 2, ...}. Adding and subtracting integers always results in an integer. Multiplying integers always results in an integer. Dividing integers can sometimes not result in an integer.

divide them or multiply then put a negative because to different signs make a negative to of the same signs make a positive

Dividing by twelve is the same thing as multiplying by 1/12. Thus, multiplying a number by 12/1, or twelve, is the opposite (inverse) of dividing a number by twelve.
