1.3 Multiplying and Dividing Real Numbers

In this lesson you will learn how to multiply and divide real numbers (positive and negative numbers). The good news is the rules are very easy and are the same for both multiplication and division. I want to caution you students out there that all the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing real numbers are not hard- however, they are very easy to confuse. As a matter of fact, I would say well over 50% of algebra errors are those of confusing positive and negative number rules. My point: study hard, take good notes and practice, practice, practice...
