How do you multiply and divide integers?

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

How is doing operations with rational expressions similar or different from doing equations with fractions and how can they be used in real life?

How is doing operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing) with rational expressions similar to or different from doing operations with fractions?If you know how to do arithmetic with rational numbers you will understand the arithmetic with rational functions! Doing operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing) is very similar. When you areadding or subtracting they both require a common denominator. When multiplying or dividing it works the same for instance reducing by factoring. Operations on rational expressions is similar to doing operations on fractions. You have to come up with a common denominator in order to add or subtract. To multiply the numerators and denominators separated. In division you flip the second fraction and multiply. The difference is that rational expressions can have variable letters and powers in them.


How is multiplying and dividing decimals similar to multiplying and dividing whole number?

What is one step when multiplying fractions?

Multiplication of fractions is similar to multiplication of whole numbers. Often, multiplication of fractions can be made easier by first performing cancellation. Cancellation involves dividing both a numerator and a denominator by the same number. This is the same as dividing a fraction by one, and so it does not alter the answer. When cancelling, cross out the old terms and write in the new terms.
