Division of signed numbers

The rules for dividing integers are similar to the rules for multiplying integers:

Dividing Integers with Different Signs |
The quotient of two integers with different signs is negative |

Dividing Integers with the Same Signs |
The quotient of two integers with the same sign is positive |

**
Divide:**

**a. 16÷(-4)**
The two integers have different signs.
Their quotient is negative.
16 ÷ (-4) = -4 |
**b. (-30)÷(-5)**
The two integers have the same sign.
Their quotient is positive.
(-30) ÷ (-5) = 6 |

**Rules of signs **

( + ) ÷ ( + ) = ( + )
( + ) ÷ ( - ) = ( - )

( - ) ÷ ( - ) = ( + ) ( - ) ÷ ( + ) = ( - )
