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.

The value of the quotient of two integers with different signs is the same as if the signs were the same. Because the numbers have different signs, the quotient is negative.

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.

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.

for integers with tow different signs, it will always be negative in multiplying and division. for adding and subtracting, the sign is for the bigger number.

If the signs (positive/negative) are the same, the answer is going to be positive. If the signs are different, the answer going to be negative.

Multiply two integers disregarding the signs. Then if the signs are the same, the answer is positive and if the signs are different, the answer is negative. Alternatively, if you are multiplying together a whole bunch of numbers, first find the product while ignoring the signs. Then count all the negative numbers. If the count is even, the answer is positive and if it is odd, the answer is negative.

When multiplying integers, multiplying by the same sign will always produce a positive integer. Such as a negative times a negative equals a positive. If the signs are different then the product will be a negative.

positive x positive = positive negative x negative = positive positive x negative = negative negative x positive = negative The same rules apply for dividing, since dividing is actually multiplying by the reciprical.

It the two rational numbers have different signs, then the answer will be negative, otherwise it will be positive.

If the two numbers have different signs, then the result will be negative. If the two numbers have the same signs, the result will be positive. This assumes all the numbers are non-zero.

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

It the signs of the two numbers that you are multiplying or dividing is the same, then the answer is positive, otherwise the answer is negative. Remember though, that division by 0 is not defined.

Multiplying or dividing a positive and negative gives a negative result. Multiplying or dividing two negatives gives a positive result.

It is IF the integers have different signs.

When multiplying or dividing . . .If the signs of both numbers are the same, the result is positive.If the signs of both numbers are different, the result is negative.

Temporarily ignore the signs and multiply or divide as usualIf signs of the two numbers to be multiplied or divided, add + sign to your answer. If signs are different, add - ( minus) to your answer.+ signs are optional-- a number without a sign is assumed to be positive.

-- write the difference between the integers without regard to their signs -- give the difference the same sign as the larger of the two integers

always a positiveMultiplying and dividing rule:(remember this; it's very useful) When you multiply or divide two numbers . . .-- If they both have the same sign, then the answer is positive.-- If they have different signs, then the answer is negative.

-- If the two integers have the same sign, their quotient is positive. -- If the two integers have different signs, their quotient is negative.

I have no idea that the product could be musical! If the two numbers have the same sign, the product is positive. If two numbers have different signs the product is negative.
