__Dividing integers__Today in class we learned about dividing integers.

First of all it follows the sign rules too.

- If you have the same sign the answer is a positive integer.

- If you have different signs the answer is a negative integer.

eg.

1.)

12 ÷ 3 = 4

__12__

3 = 4

- How many groups of 3 are in 12?

- Share 12 equally with 3 groups

2.)

-12 ÷ -3 = 4

__-12__

-3 = 4

The "share" sentence doesn't work with this question because it won't make sense.

- How many groups of -3 are in -12?

3.)

-12 ÷ 3 = -4

__-12__

3 = -4

- Share -12 equally with 3 groups

4.)

12 ÷ -3 = -4

__12__

-3 = -4

NOT:

- How many groups of...

- Share 12 with -3 groups

- because the statements would not make sense.

-a multiplication question that asks the same question as the division

Division: 12 ÷ -3 = -4

Multiplication:

__?__x -3 =12 ? = -4

There is no picture for this one.
