++ = Positive

-- = Positive

+- = Negative

-+ = Negative

Question 1:

(+8) / (+4) =

There are 2 ways to answer this question.

1. "Share (+8) into (+4) equal groups."

2. "How many equal groups of (+4) are in (+8)?"

So, first way is to Share 8 into 4 equal groups.

The answer is +2

We are simply sharing 8 into 4 equal groups.

The second way, "How many equal groups of 4 are in 8?"

The answer is +2 also.

Since there is 2 groups of 4 in 8.

Question 2:

(-8) / (-4) =

First way: "

Second way: "How many equal groups of (-4) are in (-8)?"

The answer is +2

It is a positive because of the Sign Rule. - and - make +.

Question 3:

(-8) / (+4) =

First way: "Share (-8) into (+4) equal groups"

Second way: "

The answer is -2.

Question 4:

(+8) / (-4) =

First way: "

Second way: "

Both of them are wrong. So there is this thing called "Multiplicative Inverse"

Which is:

(-2) x (-4) = +8
