When dividing numbers that are different the answer will be 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.

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 Integers are whole numbers. 1 3/4 is not a integer whereas 1 is. ###### Jobs & EducationComputer ProgrammingMath and ArithmeticScienceNumbers Algebra Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
