Mrs. Jenson owes $8,000 on her car loan. Each of her 4 children is willing to pay an equal share of this loan. Using integers, determine how much money each of her children will pay.


Owing $8,000 can be represented by -8,000. We must divide -8,000 by 4 in order to solve this problem. However, we need rules for dividing integers in order to continue.

Rule 1:

The quotient of a positive integer and a negative integer is a negative integer.

Rule 2:

The quotient of two negative integers or two positive integers is a positive integer.

We can now use Rule 1 to solve the problem above arithmetically: -8,000 ÷ +4 = -2,000. Each of Mrs. Jenson's four children will pay $2,000. Let's look at some more examples of dividing integers using the above rules.

hope this helps!......

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

What are the fundamental operation of integers?

I am not sure there are any fundamental operations of integers. The fundamental operations of arithmetic are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. However, the set of integers is not closed with respect to division: that is, the division of one integer by another does not necessarily result in an integer.

What happens with the numbers when you multiply and divide integers?

If you multiply integers the results is an integer. If you divide integers (with one exception) the result is a rational number which, in some cases, may be an integer. However, the exception is that division by 0 is not defined.
