When we divide a positive integer by a negative integer, we first divide them as whole numbers and then put a minus sign (–) before the quotient.

(a) $125 \div (-25) = -\left (\frac{125}{25} \right ) = -5$

(b) $80\div (-5) = -\left (\frac{80}{5} \right ) = -16$

(c) $64\div (-16) = -\left (\frac{64}{16} \right ) = -4$
