How do i go about finding the integers of a product and quotient ... like, product of -20 whose quotient is -5 ..... thanks again

  • Pre-Algebra ... again :-( -

    You divide the product by the quotient. So for instance, the answer for the above question will be 4. (positive 4) Since, Negative divided by negative is positive. Hope this helps.

    Thank you Miss Rose!

    x * y = -20
    x/y = -5
    -5y^2 = -20
    y = 2
    x = -10

  • Pre-Algebra ... again :-( -

    You could also have y = -2 with x = 10
