What happens when you divide a negative by a negative?
a negative divided by a negative is a positive
the answer becomes negative
Dividing a negative number by a positive number results in a negative answer.
Nothing happens, especially. You just get a quotient, which is negative, and which may be correct or incorrect just like any other division problem.
A positive number divided by a negative number is negative. The same happens if you divide a negative number by a positive number - the result will also be negative.yes
you can divide two negative numbers easily! think,if a bad thing (which represents a negative number) happens to a bad person (which also represents a negative number) is a good thing/positive, which means positive number! EXAMPLE: -20 divided by -4=40! (bad thing/negative) divided by (bad person/negative)= good thing/positive
If it's a positive number then the result will be negative. If it is a negative the result will be positive. +6/-1 = -6 -6/-1 = +6
If you divide a positive number by a positive number, the result is positive. If you divide a positive number by a negative number, the result is negative. If you divide a negative number by a positive number, the result is negative. If you divide a negative number by a negative number, the result is again positive.
When an inequality is multiplied or divided by a negative number the inequality sign is reversed. Example : -x < 7 ......after multiplying by (say) -2 this becomes 2x > -14
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.
The answer will be positive.
Dividing by a number (between 0 and 1) will result in a higher magnitude number than the original. If the number was positive, then it will be a bigger number, if the number was negative, the answer will be 'more negative'
You divide the negative number by a positive number for it to stay positive. And you divide the negative number by a negative number for it to become positive.
The process is no different to normal division it's simply that the result is negative. If you divide a negative number by a positive number then the result is negative. Equally, if you divide a positive number by a negative number then the result is also negative. -3373 ÷ 2319 = -1.4545 (4dp)
Yes, if you divide a positive number by a negative number the result will be a negative number
Divide as you would divide positive fractions. That is, convert both fractions to positive, then do the division. After that, apply the rules for dividing positive and negative numbers. For example, if one of the fractions is positive and the other negative, the answer will be negative.
always a positive
Yes a negative divided by a positive is a negative! :)
You do. The result will be negative.
-- Ignore the signs temporarily. -- Divide the numbers. -- The quotient is negative.
GenelleBabee: it becomes a positive because when you multiply two negatives it becomes a positive, & it's the same thing with division.
-N/i=-Ni/(i*i) = (multiply top and bottom by i -Ni/-1 = Ni (i times i) = -1 You get a positive number (N) times i.
Positive 20 divide by negative 4= negative 5 A positive divide by a negative will always be a negative. Then just do the sum.
It will be negative.
The direction of the inequality remains unchanged. The direction changes when you divide or multiply both sides by a negative number. It also changes if both sides are raised to a negative exponent.
to divide then a negative number!
You just divide like you would divide any other decimal, and then... Positive and Positive = Positive Negative and Negative = Positive Positive and Negative = Negative I hope my answer helped! :)
You divide the equivalent positive numbers. Then you add a negative sign to the result.
If you divide a positive number (it doesn't really matter if it is an integer or a fraction) by a negative number, the result is negative.
it is a negative answer
The inequality sign changes direction. So 2<3 Multiply by -2 and you get -4>-6 (similarly with division).
Nothing happens to the inequality sign.
Divide it normally and the result(quotient) is negative. e.g. 4/(-2) = -2.
When you divide a negative number by a positive number or a positive number by a negative number, the division is done the same way as when both numbers are positive, and the quotient is negative. When dividing a negative number by a negative number, divide as usual, and the quotient is positive. + Ã· + = + + Ã· - = - - Ã· + = - - Ã· - = + + x… Read More
Pretend the negative number is positive divide the positive number by a positive number make the result negative. For example, divide 12 by -6: Pretend -6 is 6 divide 12 by 6 to get 2 make the result negative to give -2 Thus 12 ÷ -6 = -2
Relief happens if you are HIV negative.
a negative number
-3 (Negative 3).
When you divide or multiply positive and negative numbers, you first do the division or multiplication as normal. The next step is to assess whether or not the answer will be negative or positive. If the two numbers of the question were the same (negative and negative or positive and positive) then the answer will be positive. If the two numbers in the question were different (one negative and one positive) then the answer will… Read More
Divide like normal. When dividing, if one number is negative and the other number is positive, the answer is negative. So the answer would be negative. For example, -24/8 = -3.
The same way that you divide two positive numbers. Just remember at the end that the result is negative.
you will get a negative number -/-=+ +/-=- -/+=- +/+=+ you will get a negative number -/-=+ +/-=- -/+=- +/+=+ poop
What is the sign of the answer if you mutiply 2 negative numbers and then divide the product by a negative number?
The quotient is negative.
How a fraction changes when you divide it depends on what you divide it by.
You will end up with a negative value. It does not matter whether the numerator or denominator is negative. If either value is negative, the answer will be negative.
The product of two positive integers or two negative integers is positive. The product of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative. The quotient of two positive integers or two negative integers is positive. The quotient of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative. 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… Read More
how do you divide 10 by -2? First you divide 10 by 2. Then you put a negative sign in front of the answer. The rule for multiplication and division is that if there are an even number of negative signs, the result is a positive number, if there are an odd number of negative signs, the result is a negative number. Remember that 0 is an even number, so if there are no negative… Read More
Adding negatives? You get a negative. But if you multiply/divide 2 negatives, that's a positive.
Negative. Example: 3/-3= -1
It depends on what you divide them by!
(-1)/2 = -(1/2); yes
