Rules for operations with integers
Learn how to do operations with integers.
Division and Multiplication:
If the integers is unlike, the quotient will be negative. Example
(4) ÷ (-12) = -3 or (-5) * (4) = -20
In other words, if the signs are the same the quotient will be positive, if they are different, the quotient will be negative.
Addition and Subtraction with integers:
When adding with integers, the rules are pretty simple. When you have like signs, you add and stay with the sign of the integer with higher value if you have unlike signs, you subtract.
-10 -5 = -15
5 + (-3) =
