It is the same rules that apply for multiplying them:
positive and negative are negative
positive and positive are positive
negitve and negative are positive
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.
You divide the equivalent positive numbers. Then you add a negative sign to the result.
Divide as you would divide positive fractions. That is, convert both fractions to positive, then do the division. After that, apply the rules for dividing positive and negative numbers. For example, if one of the fractions is positive and the other negative, the answer will be negative.
You will end up with a positive number. With integers, if you multiply or divide an even amount of negative numbers, the answer will be positive and if you multiply or divide an odd amount, the answer will be negative.
-- Ignore the signs temporarily. -- Divide the numbers. -- The quotient is negative.
The same way that you divide two positive numbers. Just remember at the end that the result is negative.
Same as regular division with positive numbers. Its just that a negative number divided by another negative numbers equals a positive number.
1). First, ignore the signs. Just go ahead and multiply or divide the numbers as if they were both positive.Then, when you have that answer . . .2). If both of the original numbers had the same sign, then the answer is positive.If the original numbers had different signs, then the answer is negative.
The quotient is what you get when you divide two numbers. If both numbers are positive, the quotient will be positive. If both numbers are negative, the quotient will be positive. If one number is positive and one number is negative, their quotient will be negative.
divide by 2, one answer is negative and the other is positive. if your question is "how do you halve negative numbers?"
To divide negative numbers, you divide the corresponding positive numbers. Then:If one number is positive and one is negative, you add a minus sign to the result. For example, 8 / (-2) = (-8) / 2 = -4.If both numbers are negative, the result is positive.For example: (-8) / (-2) = 4.-18/6 = -3-8/-4 = 235/-5 = -7
Actually it does, whenever you mulitply and divide two negative and two positive numbers they always equal a positive number. When you multiply and divide a negative and positive they always equal a negative number.
When you divide a negative number by a positive number or a positive number by a negative number, the division is done the same way as when both numbers are positive, and the quotient is negative. When dividing a negative number by a negative number, divide as usual, and the quotient is positive. + Ã· + = + + Ã· - = - - Ã· + = - - Ã· - = + + x + = + + x - = - - x + = - - x - = +
This is accomplished the same way as with positive integers. Add all of the numbers together and divide by (positive) 2. Don't let the negative signs fool you!
If you multiply or divide the numbers, the answer will be negative.
always a positive
multiplying and dividing a negative number will "flip" the sign of the other number. So multiplying two negative numbers will produce a positive number. Multiplying one positive and one negative number will produce a negative. And of course two positive numbers yield a positive.
When you multiply or divide two numbers . . . -- If they both have the same sign, then the result is positive. -- If their signs are different, then the result is negative.
any two negative numbers multiplied together equals a positive number. any two positives numbers multiplied together equal positive numbers and any negative and positive numbers multiplied together equals a negative.negative, negative = positivenegative, positive = negativepositive, positive = positive
Same way as for positive numbers: add them together and divide by two.
Do you mean with a denominator that is also negative? If you do, then it would be just like dividing positive numbers, the answer would be positive. If you divide two numbers and they have different signs, then the answer will be negative. However the task of dividing is the same no matter what the signs are. So... If they are the same sign ---> Positive If they are opposite signs ---> Negative
You just divide like you would divide any other decimal, and then... Positive and Positive = Positive Negative and Negative = Positive Positive and Negative = Negative I hope my answer helped! :)
