The difference between adding and subtracting integers to multiplying and dividing integers comes by the sign conversion.

For eg, there are two sets of integer -4 and -2 and -4 and 2 .

Lets add and subtract and find the result .

addition : -4 +(-2) = -6.

subtraction :

-4 -(-2) = -2.

Multiplication : -4 *(-2) = 8.

Division :

-4 /(-2) = 2.

On the other hand,second set

addition :

-4 +(2) = -2.

subtraction :

-4 -(2) = -6.

product :

-4 *(2) = -8.

division :

-4 /(2) = -2.

They aren't. The rules are the same as those for adding/subtracting or multiplying integers. Just be careful of the decimal point's location.

Is there a difference between multiplying and dividing integers?

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.

What are the similarities between integers?

All integers belong to the set {..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. The absolute value of any integer results in a whole number {0, 1, 2, ...}. Adding and subtracting integers always results in an integer. Multiplying integers always results in an integer. Dividing integers can sometimes not result in an integer.
