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.

How is a negative integer less then any positive integer?

Because positive numbers are to the right of negative numbers on the number line. If you have two numbers, one the negative of the other, and you add the positive to the negative, you get zero. If you add the positive to zero, you get a positive number. So positive numbers are an increase from zero, which is an increase from negative numbers. A negative number may have a greater absolute value than a positive number, but it will always be less than a positive number.
