It will be negative.

Yes a negative divided by a positive is a negative! :)

You just divide like you would divide any other decimal, and then... Positive and Positive = Positive Negative and Negative = Positive Positive and Negative = Negative I hope my answer helped! :)

You divide the negative number by a positive number for it to stay positive. And you divide the negative number by a negative number for it to become positive.

Divide as you would divide positive fractions. That is, convert both fractions to positive, then do the division. After that, apply the rules for dividing positive and negative numbers. For example, if one of the fractions is positive and the other negative, the answer will be negative.

Negative.

You do. The result will be negative.

You will end up with a positive number. With integers, if you multiply or divide an even amount of negative numbers, the answer will be positive and if you multiply or divide an odd amount, the answer will be negative.
