Divide Positive and Negative Numbers

Use the fact that dividing is the same as multiplying by the inverse to rewrite these problems as multiplication problems.

Then solve the multiplication problems in order to find the answer to the original division problems.

  • −8 ÷ −14

Hint:

You need to find the inverse of 2 to rewrite the first division problem as a multiplication problem. What is the inverse of 2?
