Integer is an number which does not contain fractional or decimal component and includes a set of positive numbers, zero and negative numbers. Sign of an integer is either positive (+) or negative (-), except zero which has no sign.

To divide integers follow this two simple steps:1. Divide the given pair of integers

$\frac{Numerator}{Denominator}$- If a positive integer is divided by a negative integer then the sign of the integer is negative.
- If two positive integers or two negative integers are divided the sign of the integer will be positive.

2. Verify the answer by using the following formula:

Dividend = Divisor $\times$ Quotient + Remainder.

**For example,** Divide:

$\frac{20}{-4}$Solution:

**Step 1:** From the given problem we see that Numerator = 20 and Denominator = -4.

So,

$\frac{20}{-4}$ = -5. Remainder is zero.

**Step 2:** Verify using the above formula

Dividend = Divisor $\times$ Quotient + Remainder.

20 = - 4 $\times$ - 5

20 = 20. Hence proved.

Therefore,

$\frac{20}{-4}$ = - 5.
