Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No problem, so what would six times four be then? (6)(4). Just ignore the negative sign for the moment.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Then, since it's a negative number, it would literally just be the negative of that. So (6)(4) = 24.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about (50) ÷ (2)?

Schrodinger

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2When 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?
