yes

-4 is an integer, so the easiest way to express it as a quotient of two integers is as(-4)/1.

It is: 273/50 = 5.46 which is the quotient of two integers

Yes.

The quotient of two nonzero integers is the definition of a rational number. There are nonzero numbers other than integers (imaginary, rational non-integers) that the quotient of would not be a rational number. If the two nonzero numbers are rational themselves, then the quotient will be rational. (For example, 4 divided by 2 is 2: all of those numbers are rational).

Yes, it is.

Ummm..... i don't know because i'm asking the question so you tell me

Their quotient is positive if the integers have the same sign;negative if the integers have different signs;zero if the dividend is zero (and the divisor is not).

True.

yes

-- Their sum and difference both have the same sign that the two integers have. -- Their product and quotient are both positive.

It follows from the definitions of the two operations.

Quotient positive: Both integers have the same sign: both positive or both negative. Quotient zero: The first integer is 0. Quotient negative: The integers have opposite signs: one positive and one negative.

Those are the rules of multiplication (and division).

When the quotient of two integers is positive, either both integers are positive or both negative. When the quotient of two integers is negative, one of the integers is positive and one negative. When the quotient of two integers is zero, the first integer is zero and the second one is anything but zero.

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