How to multiply Integers


When you multiply positive and negative integers all you do is...

First all you do is just multiply.

If in the integers there was a even amount of negatives then the answer will be positive.

But if the original equation had a odd number of negatives then the answer will be negative.

EXAMPLE: -9 x -10 x 1 = 90 because there is a even number of negatives

          When you multiply all positive integers the answer will also           be positive.

EXAMPLE:  8 x 6 = 48








How to Divide Integers

When you divide positive and negative integers all you do is ...

First all you do is to just divide.

Then to determine whether the answer is is negative or positive all you do is when you divide the integers; if there is a even amount of negatives then the answer is positive.

But if the equation had a odd number of negatives then the answer will be negative.

If the equation only had positive numbers then the answer will also be positive

EXAMPLES: -10/-5= 2   10/-5= -2  24/6= 4    -100/-10/2= 5

This also works with division.
