What happen when you divide negative and positive number?

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 be negative. Thus, if you divide a negative number by a positive number, the result will be the same as normal division, but the answer will be negative.
