Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you multiply or divide two numbers with the same sign (both positive or both negative) the answer is positive. Otherwise, the answer is negative. Divide the numbers ignoring the signs, then use the above rule to determine which sign to give the answer. For example: 32/8 = 4 32/8 = 4 32/8 = 4 32/8 = 4
