1. The quotient of two numbers with like signs is positive. 2. The quotient of two numbers with unlike signs is negative. EXAMPLE 4 Divide: a. 7 Ϫ44 b. 11 Ϫ9 Strategy We will use the rules for dividing positive and negative real numbers. Why Solution Each quotient involves signed numbers. a. Ϫ44 ϭ Ϫ4 11 Divide the absolute values, 44 by 11, to get 4. Since the signs are unlike, make the final answer negative. b. 3. Since the signs are like, the final answer is positive. Self Check 4 Now Try Divide: 55 a.

The / symbol is also used with inequality symbols. ” It is always possible to write an equivalent inequality with the inequality symbol pointing in the opposite direction. For example: If Ϫ3 Ͻ 4, it is also true that 4 Ͼ Ϫ3. 3. 16 CHAPTER 1 A Review of Basic Algebra EXAMPLE 4 The Language of Algebra A fraction and its decimal equivalent are different notation that represent the same value. Solution Use one of the symbols Ͼ or Ͻ to make each statement true. 3 b. 377 8 a. Ϫ24 Ϫ25 Strategy To pick the correct inequality symbol to place between a given pair of numbers, we need to determine the position of each on a number line.
