Multiplying and dividing integers is real easy. All you have to do is do regular dividing and multiplying keeping in mind these simple rules: RULES: 1: When multiplying or dividing integers, when the numbers are a positive, positive they equal a positive. When the numbers are negative, negative they equal a positive. In other words, same signs equal positive. 2: This rule is very similar to the rule above. The only change is that when the signs are different, they equal a negative. ( negative, positive= negative, positive, negative= negative.) Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Multiply integers- my notes from class

positive x positive= positive

positive x negative= negative

negative x negative= positive

Divide integers- again my notes from class

positive divided by a positive= positive

negative divided by a negative= positive

negative divided by a positive= negative

Dividing integers are simple if the number has a different sign than the other it is always negative but if they have the same sign its always positive

ex. -20/5=-4

ex. -20/-4=-5

When you add, subtract, or multiply integers, you get integers. When you divide one integer by another one, you may or may not get an integer.


you can add subtract multiply and divide them.


why is it important to know how to multiply


Exactly in the same way that you would multiply and divide whole numbers which is another name for integers


If you multiply integers the results is an integer. If you divide integers (with one exception) the result is a rational number which, in some cases, may be an integer. However, the exception is that division by 0 is not defined.


add, subtract, multiply, divide


Only when you divide or multiply.


You multiply or divide integers just as you do whole numbers, except you must keep track of the signs. To multiply or divide signed integers, always multiply or divide the absolute values and use these rules to determine the sign of the answer.When you multiply two integers with the same signs, the result is always positive. Just multiply the absolute values and make the answer positive.Positive x positive = positiveNegative x negative = positiveWhen you multiply two integers with different signs, the result is always negative. Just multiply the absolute values and make the answer negative.Positive x negative = negativeNegative x positive = negative.

You will end up with a positive number. With integers, if you multiply or divide an even amount of negative numbers, the answer will be positive and if you multiply or divide an odd amount, the answer will be negative.


You arrive at a resultant, the resultant depends on the operation carried out.


Neither. I just remember the least common factor of any set of integers is 1.


Remember PEMDAS; please excuse my dear aunt Sally. Parentheses, exponents, multiply, divide, add, and subtract.


You divide the integer by the decimal.



First comes multiply then comes divide.


Because in alot of future jobs, you need to know how to add/subtract/divide/multiply negatves to positives and vice versa.


Either one! It depends what you multiply or divide BY!To go from kilograms to grams: MULTIPLY BY 1000 (or divide by .001!)To go from grams to kilograms: DIVIDE BY 1000 (or multiply by .001)


Add the integers together, then divide it by the number of integers there are, (in this case 5)


Multiply by 1000 or divide by 0.001


The dot means to multiply.


You divide 2 by 3. Then you multiply the result by 100.You divide 2 by 3. Then you multiply the result by 100.You divide 2 by 3. Then you multiply the result by 100.You divide 2 by 3. Then you multiply the result by 100.


i think you need to multiply because...... greatest to least= multiply least to greatest= divide


You multiply the first two. Then you multiply the result with the third number. Actually you can multiply in any order.
