# Answers to Practice Test on Dividing Integers

Below are the answers and the explanations of the **Practice Test on Dividing Integers**. Note that as mentioned in the post **Dividing Positive and Negative Integers**, the rules in dividing integers as well as real numbers are the following:

(1) positive number ÷ positive number = positive number

(2) positive number ÷ negative number = negative number

(3) negative number ÷ positive number = negative number

(4) negative number ÷ negative number = positive number.

**Answers and Explanation**

1.) -35 ÷ 7 = -5 (by rule 3)

2.) 38 ÷ -19 = -2 (by rule 2)

3.) 56 ÷ 8 = 7 (by rule 1)

4.) -84 ÷ -12 = 7 (by rule 4)

5.) -28 ÷ -1 = 28 (by rule 4)

6.) 0 ÷ -5 = 0 (0 divided by any number is 0)

8.) -156 ÷ 12 = -13 (by rule 3)

9.) -34 ÷ -17 = 2 (by rule 4)

10.) -180 ÷ 9 = -20 (by rule 3)

I hope you got all the answers correct. In the next post, we will be discussing about the order of operations. This is simplifying numbers with more than one operations.
