## Division of Integers

Division can be represented in three ways:

1. The division box

2. The division sign

16 ÷ 8 = 2

3. Fraction

The rules for division of integers are the same as the rules for multiplication of integers.

Rule 1: To divide two integers with like signs, divide the absolute values of the numbers and give the answer a + sign .

#### Example 1

Divide (+24) ÷ (+6).

#### Solution 1

Divide 24 ÷ 6 = 4. Since both integers are positive, give the answer a + sign.

Hence, (+24) ÷ (+6) = +4.

#### Example 2

Divide (–18) ÷ (–2).

#### Solution 2

Divide 18 ÷ 2 = 9. Since both integers are negative, give the answer a + sign.

Hence, (–18) ÷ (–2) = +9.

Rule 2: To divide two integers with unlike signs, divide the absolute values of the integers and give the answer asign .

#### Example 3

Divide (–30) ÷ (+5).

#### Solution 3

Divide 30 ÷ 5 = 6. Since the numbers have unlike signs, give the answer a – sign. Hence, (–30) ÷ (+5) = –6.

#### Example 4

Divide (+15) ÷ (–5).

#### Solution 4

Divide 15 ÷ 5 = 3. Since the numbers have unlike signs, give the answer a – sign. Hence, (+15) ÷ (–5) = –3.
