The rules are not the same.Multiplication is commutative whereas division is not.Multiplication is associative whereas division is not.
did you get this off of big ideas learning
The rules are the same.
adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing
Adding integers, if they have the same sign, add their absolute values and keep the same sign. Subtracting, change the sign of the 2nd number and the add using rules of addition. Multiplying and dividing, Divide the absolute values, if the signs are the same the answer is positive, if the signs are different the answer is negative.
i dont no heheheheheheh
Because it is.
Being multiply or divide. Then = + = - = - = + If a number does not have a sign in front of it, then treat it as positive. e.g. 4 x 5 = 20 -4 x 5 = -20 4 x - 5 = -20 -4 x -5 = (+)20
One misconception is that the process is difficult.
It will be the same as dividing positives but if it is a negetive divided by a postive the answer will still be negative
