Explain. 3 Multiplying and Dividing Integers What You Should Learn NASA 1 ᭤ Multiply integers with like signs and with unlike signs. 2 ᭤ Divide integers with like signs and with unlike signs. 3 ᭤ Find factors and prime factors of an integer. 4 ᭤ Represent the definitions and rules of arithmetic symbolically. 1 Why You Should Learn It Multiplying Integers You can multiply and divide integers to solve real-life problems. For instance, in Exercise 109 on page 30, you will divide integers to find the average speed of a space shuttle.

Find the absolute value of the sum of Ϫ54 and 26.

If it is composite, write its prime factorization. − 50 − 100 − 150 1st 2nd −97,750 −101,500 3rd 4th Quarter Figure for 27 23.

So, it is true that 351 Ϭ 13 ϭ 27 because 27͑13͒ ϭ 351. All four operations on integers (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) are used in the following real-life example. EXAMPLE 4 Stock Purchase On Monday you bought \$500 worth of stock in a company. During the rest of the week, you recorded the gains and losses in your stock’s value, as shown in the table. Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Gained \$15 Lost \$18 Lost \$23 Gained \$10 a. What was the value of the stock at the close of Wednesday?
