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

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Exactly in the same way that you would multiply and divide whole numbers which is another name for integers

Is there a difference between multiplying and dividing integers?

Multiplying is the opposite of dividing, whether it be using integers or other numbers and variables. Technically, multiplying and dividing integers is different, but the two processes are very strongly related to each other. For example, if one multiplies two and two together, one gets four as an answer. If one then divides four by two, one gets two. The multiplication of the 2 was reversed by the division of the 2.

Is the divides relation on the set of positive integers transitive?

Yes. Suppose x divides y then there exist an integer p such that y = px. Suppose y divides z then there exist an integer q such that z = qy. Therefore z = q*px = qp*x Since p and q are integers then pq is an integer and therefore x divides z. That is to say: if x divides y and y divides z, then x divides z.
