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
