The quotient of a positive integer by a negative is always negative. Say this to yourself a couple times: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

I honestly don't know :D but heres something to help you "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

The product is positive

following multiplication integer rules and division rules, you should get: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)" a division problem is a multiplication problem in disguise

When you multiply a negative number by a positive number then the product is always negative. When you multiply a positive number by a negative number then the product is always negative. ( - 2 ) ( + 3 ) = - 6 ( - 4 ) ( 1 ) = - 4 ( - 1 ) 2 = - 2 ( + 2 ) ( - 2 ) = - 4 ( 3 ) ( - 2 ) = - 6 4 ( - 2 ) = - 8

Positive (Plus) times Negative (Minus) always equals a negative (minus).

A minus by a minus by a positive gives a positive.

Simple math rules state that a negative times a negative equals a positive!

A positive times a negative is a negative.

A negative times a positive is neegative

Negative times positive equals negative.

A minus plus a minus is not necessarily positive. A minus multiplied by a minus is. The reason being that the minus of a minus is a positive. It's a double negative.

A plus times a plus is still a plus. Below is the way I remembered it: If there is not a minus sign, it is plus (positive). If there is 1 minus sign, it is minus (negative). If there are 2 minus signs, it is plus (positive).

two negatives always equal a positive

Negative times a Negative is a Positive. Negative minus a Negative is a Negative.

Because "minus a negative" is tha same as "plus a positive". So, a positive minus a negative is a positive plus a positive which is a positive.

A positive minus a negative is a positive.

a positive

positive 5 minus positive 11 = negative 6

-3

It is NOT necessarily a positive. It will be positive only if it is a larger number minus a smaller number.

The same as a positive one. If you are multiplying a positive number by a negative, the answer will be negative. If you are multiplying a negative number by a negative, the answer will be positive.

positive 6 minus positive 4 = (+6) - (+4)= +2

Positive 3 plus negative 5 minus negative 2 minus positive 4 is equal to -4.

It depends. (a) a positive minus a smaller positive is positive, (b) a positive minus a positive of the same size is zero, and (c) a positive minus a bigger positive is negative. For example, (a) 8 - 6 = 2 (b) 8 - 8 = 0 (c) 8 - 11 = -3
