# 7th Grade Math / Lesson 7B: Basic Operations II

 OPERATIONS What will we be learning in this lesson? In this lesson you will learn how the effects of operations on numbers. Vocabulary words are found in this purple color throughout the lesson. Remember to put these in your notebook.

 Operations Multiplying and Dividing 1. If multiplying or dividing numbers that have the same sign, the sign of the answer is positive. Ex) -3 * -4 = 12 Ex) 3 * 4 = 12 Ex) 8 / 2 = 4 Ex) -8 / (-2) = 42. If multiplying or dividing numbers that have different signs, the sign of the answer is negative. Ex) -3 * 4 = -12 Ex) 3 * (-4) = -12 Ex) -8 / 2 = -4 Ex) 8 / (-2) = -4
