    Let me first ask, do you know how positives and negatives multiply? This is pretty basic so what exactly do you know about multiplication?

    No problem, so what would six times four be then? (6)(4). Just ignore the negative sign for the moment.

    Then, since it's a negative number, it would literally just be the negative of that. So (6)(-4) = -24.

    what about (-50) ÷ (-2)?

    When you divide a negative number by a negative number, it's what's commonly referred to as a "double negative", and the number comes out positive. So \[(-50)\div(-2) = (50)\div(2)\] So just divide 50 by 2. WHat do you get?
