Sanjana’s Homework Help Section–How to Multiply and Divide a Negative by a Positive

Tip: Before we start, I want to show you something you could use to help you:

peace sign integers

If you have to multiply a negative and a positive, you just need to cover up the two signs that are in the sign. So multiplying a positive and a negative you cover the positive and the negative on the sign.

Step 1: Just multipy or divide normally, as if there were no signs.

Ex 1: -3 x 2; just multiple normally: so 6.

Ex 2: -6 / 2; just divide normally: so 3

Step 2: That’s really it. Divide normally and then use the peace sign to cover up the two signs you have. The uncovered sign would be the one you need.
