## What are the rules for adding and subtracting integers?

Are you a parent or math tutor who is looking for help with teaching your child about multiplying and dividing integers? Start here for rules and directions.

## Let’s start here: What is an integer?

An integer is a whole number – it is not a fraction. It can be a negative number or a positive number or zero. It cannot be a decimal!

This means that when someone asks you what an integer is, the easiest response is that it is a whole number.

When you multiply two integers, your answer will always be an integer. This means that the answer will be a whole number that is positive or negative. You will never have an answer containing a fraction or a decimal.

While this is true for multiplying integers, it is not always true for dividing integers.

When you divide an integer by an integer your answer might be an integer. You might also have an answer that contains a decimal.

## Rules for multiplying integers

You will begin by multiplying the absolute value of each number. Then, follow these rules to determine if the product will be positive or negative:

1. When you multiply two positive integers, the product will always be a positive integer.
2. When you multiply two negative integers, the product will always be a positive integer.
3. When you multiply a negative integer by a positive integer, the product will always be a negative integer.

## Rules for dividing integers

You will begin by dividing the absolute value of each number. Then, follow these rules to determine if the product will be positive or negative.

1. When you divide two positive integers, the quotient will always be a positive integer.
2. When you divide two negative integers, the quotient will always be a positive integer.
3. When you divide a negative integer by a positive integer, the product will always be a negative integer.

## About these multiplying and dividing integers worksheets

These free sixth grade math worksheets are designed to provide your students with practice.

The pages can be used once the skill has been taught – they contain no parts that will teach the materials.

Because these pages are intended for review and practice, I have included 12 problems on each.

I truly believe that worksheets should not contain too many problems.

You don’t want students practicing too many times the wrong way if they do not understand.

If they do understand, they do not need 40 problems to prove this.

Twelve problems will provide enough practice to reinforce the skill or to show you they need help
