The answer is 2. However, if you did 256 divided by positive 32 divided by positive 4, you would get the same answer. Just as a negative times a negative equals a positive, so does a negative divided by a negative.

a negative x a negative= a positive, a positive x a positive= a positive, a negative x a positive= a negative, and a positive x a negative= a negative. Same thing with division. a negative divided by a negative= a positive, a positive divided by a positive= a positive, a negative divided by a positive= a negative, and a positive divided by a negative is a negative. U see?

-6 Yes the answer would be -6. But in order to get that answer you must know this: positive divided by a positive = positive positive divided by a negative = a negative negative divided by a positive = a negative negative divided by a negative = positive (also note: it's the same formula for multiplying)

The rules for division are the same as for multiplication. Positive multiplied (or divided) by negative is negative.

The same as positive six divided by positive eight.

Yes. Same for positive times a positive (Obviously). If the signs are the same, it is positive. So, a positive times a negative is negative.

positive times positive equals positive negative times negative equals positive positive times negative equals negative Substitute "divided by" for "times" in the previous sentences and they are still true.

the same as a positive times a negative, a negative

negative. + times - is negative + times + is positive - times - is positive Basically: same sign= positive and different signs= negative

When you multiply two integers of the same sign, the answer is always positive. A positive times a positive is positive and a negative times a negative is positive.

the thing is that when there are two negatives you need to cross out those which will give positive times positive equals positive. this is the rule that you need to learn it. negative*negative=positive positive*positive=positive negative*positive=negative The same thing for devision

To divide negative and positive numbers, first, look at the signs (= or -) If there is -__divided by -__, that will equal +___.So, same equal positive... and different equals negative.EX.-9 dvided by +3= -3 (different signs, negative answer)+9 divided by -3 = -3 (different signs, negative answer)+9 divided by +3= +3 (same signs, positive answer)-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.Love=PositiveHate=NegativeIf 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 Mariepositive divided by a positive=positivepositive divided by negative=negativenegative divided by negative=positive (i know crazy isn't it!)

see if have -8 divided by -8 divide the number number first and then see to the following signs-8 divided by -8 is equal to +1-8 divided by +8 is equal to -1so different signs -same sign +++=+--=++-=--+=-

The rules for dividing negative numbers is the same as multiplying them. A negative number multiplied/divided by a negative number is positive and a negative number multiplied/divided by a positive number is negative.

A positive number times a positive number will always get you a positive number A negative number times a negative number will always get you a positive number (same signs will get you a positive number) but A positive number times a negative number will always get you a negative number or A negative number times a positive number will always get you a negative number (different signs will get you a negative number)

think of it like this a negative times a positive don't go together in a relationship they have to have the same attitude

The same as a positive one. If you are multiplying a positive number by a negative, the answer will be negative. If you are multiplying a negative number by a negative, the answer will be positive.

A positive number divided by a negative number is negative. The same happens if you divide a negative number by a positive number - the result will also be negative.yes

When you times 2 positive numbers together, you get a positive answer. When you times 2 negative numbers together, you get a positive answer. When you times a positive number and a negative number, you get a negative answer. (e.g. -2 x 4 is the same as -2 + -2 + -2 + -2, which is the same as -2 - 2 - 2 - 2 = -8)

A negative number divided by a negative number is positive. Therefore, it's the same as if both fractions were positive.

It becomes positive, same thing as negative x negative.

Same as regular division with positive numbers. Its just that a negative number divided by another negative numbers equals a positive number.

It would be a positive number. A negative number divided by a negative number would be positive. A positive number divided by a positive number would also be positive. So, the quotient of 2 integers with the same sign will be a positive number, regardless of which sign the two numbers had.

If you multiply two positive numbers, or two negative numbers, the result will be positive.If you multiply a positive and a negative number, the result will be negative.The same rules apply for division - a positive number divided by a negative number, or a negative number divided by a positive number, will give a negative result.In any case, most of the calculation is the same as for positive numbers - you only have the additional complication of deciding whether to put a plus sign or a minus sign in front of the result. For example, -8 / 2 = -4; the absolute value (4) is the same as when you divide 8 / 2, only the sign changes.If you multiply two positive numbers, or two negative numbers, the result will be positive.If you multiply a positive and a negative number, the result will be negative.The same rules apply for division - a positive number divided by a negative number, or a negative number divided by a positive number, will give a negative result.In any case, most of the calculation is the same as for positive numbers - you only have the additional complication of deciding whether to put a plus sign or a minus sign in front of the result.
