When dividing positive and negative numbers, we need to remember some simple rules. A positive number divided by a positive number gives us a positive answer. Dividing a positive by a negative or a negative by a positive gives us a negative answer. And finally, dividing a negative number by a negative number gives a positive answer. In summary, when dividing two integers with the same sign, the answer will be positive.
