# Find:    (a) (–36) ÷ (– 4)        (b) (–201) ÷ (–3)        (c) (–325) ÷ (–13)

H Harsh Kankaria

When we divide a negative integer by a negative integer, we first divide them as whole numbers and then put a positive sign (+).

(a)

$\\ (-36) \div (- 4) \\ = +\left (\frac{36}{4} \right ) \\ = 9$

(b)

$\\ (-201) \div (- 3) \\ = +\left (\frac{201}{3} \right ) \\ = 67$

(c)

$\\ (-325) \div (- 13) \\ = +\left (\frac{325}{13} \right ) \\ = 25$
