Divide Signed Integers

**Divide Signed Integers**

Every division problem has a related multiplication problem. Division and multiplication are opposite, or inverse, operations. Therefore, the rules for dividing integers are the same as multiplying integers.

**Same signs = positive quotient**

- The quotient of two numbers with the same signs is always positive.
