-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.



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
