Integers are positive and negative whole numbers, which also include zero, examples are -3, -1, 0, 4, 10, and so on. When multiplying and dividing integers, you have to remember just one rule, which is easy to learn.
You will find a pattern if you compare the products or quotients of integers after multiplying or dividing them: multiplication or division of integers with like signs always gives you a positive solution. Multiplying or dividing integers with unlike signs, on the other hand, such as with a positive and a negative number, always gives you the solution of a negative number.
This video gives you a real-life example for the concept of products and quotients of integers and summarizes all you need to know about the rule concerning like signs and unlike signs in a cheat sheet . The best thing is: you only have to remember one rule that works for multiplication as well as for division!
After watching this video you will never be confused again about the signs when dividing or multiplying intergers. This video covers negative and positive numbers on the number line as well. So whenever you have to divide or multiply integers, look for the signs.
Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.
