# How do you divide integers?

To divide negative and positive numbers, first, look at the signs (= or -) If there is -__divided by -__, that will equal +___.

So, same equal positive... and different equals negative.

EX.

-9 dvided by +3= -3 (different signs, negative answer)

+9 divided by -3 = -3 (different signs, negative answer)

+9 divided by +3= +3 (same signs, positive answer)

-9 divided by -3= +3 (same signs, positive answer)

Something that my teacher taught us to help us remember whether it would be positive or negative was the Love-Hate Theory.

Love=Positive

Hate=Negative

If you have a positive number divided by a negative number, that would be Love and Hate, so if you love to hate, than that is basically hating, which is negative. Negative divided by a negative would be hate to hate, which is love, so positive. If you need more help, post something on my message board. Sara Marie
