The rule in dividing integers is to divide the absolute values. Two positive integers or two negative integers equals positive product. If one integer is positive and the other is negative, the product is negative.

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

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.

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.

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

Quotient of integers means dividing integers, so it is a fraction or a rational number all depending on how you look at it.

It will be the same as dividing positives but if it is a negetive divided by a postive the answer will still be negative

It is the same thing as dividing whole numbers in order to find a quotient.

negetive integers are not closed under addition but positive integers are.

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.

Rule 1: The term is integer, not interger.Rule 2: The answer depends on what you want to do with it or them.

adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing

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

One rule is that the product of two integers with unlike signs will have a minus sign for the product.

Problem:Mrs. Jenson owes $8,000 on her car loan. Each of her 4 children is willing to pay an equal share of this loan. Using integers, determine how much money each of her children will pay.Solution:Owing $8,000 can be represented by -8,000. We must divide -8,000 by 4 in order to solve this problem. However, we need rules for dividing integers in order to continue.Rule 1:The quotient of a positive integer and a negative integer is a negative integer.Rule 2:The quotient of two negative integers or two positive integers is a positive integer.We can now use Rule 1 to solve the problem above arithmetically: -8,000 ÷ +4 = -2,000. Each of Mrs. Jenson's four children will pay $2,000. Let's look at some more examples of dividing integers using the above rules.hope this helps!......

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

The average of the integers 25 and 41 is 33. Average is found by adding up the integers and dividing that number by the number of integers that were added together. So, 25+41=66, then 66/2=33.
