When dividing numbers that are different the answer will be negative.

It's a positive number. Here's the rule: In multiplication and division . . . -- If both numbers have the same sign, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is positive. -- If the two numbers have different signs, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is negative.

The rule in dividing integers is to divide the absolute values. Two positive integers or two negative integers equals positive product. If one integer is positive and the other is negative, the product is negative.

divide them or multiply then put a negative because to different signs make a negative to of the same signs make a positive

Multiplying is the opposite of dividing, whether it be using integers or other numbers and variables. Technically, multiplying and dividing integers is different, but the two processes are very strongly related to each other. For example, if one multiplies two and two together, one gets four as an answer. If one then divides four by two, one gets two. The multiplication of the 2 was reversed by the division of the 2.

Integers are whole numbers. Dividing integers is simply dividing whole numbers. Dividing 9 by 3 is dividing two integers, as is dividing 28 by 7. Dividing integers is one of the easiest of math problems you will encounter suring school.

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.

No, it's not the same. Multiplying by 0.1 would be the same as dividing by 10. Dividing by 100 is the same as multiplying by 0.01.
