***using a '/' because I don't have a division thing.***

**The way to solve this question is in two ways.**

1. In the words:

"Share 8 into 4 equal groups."

**(I'm gonna put in a picture because I'm lazy.)**

So pretty much, this is what it would be separated into. (Answer is obviously 2.)

Now, the second way to say this question would be,

"How many equal groups of 4 are in 8?"

So, the answer would be 2 once again.

NEXT QUESTIONABLE QUESTION THAT MADE ME CRY OK LET'S GO

(-8) / (-4)

NO. DO NOT PUT THAT. You can't share negatives into a negative amount of groups. So, we use the other statement.

How many equal groups of -4 are in -8? 2.

This is positive 2, because of the sign rule where it says "an even number of negatives will always result in a positive.".

So..yeah.

(-8) / (4)

Share -8 in 4 equal groups.

The answer is -2.

For the second way,

Lol u loser we can't do that.

Question 4 (Final question.)

(8) / (-4) =

No.

Nope lol

NOW THIS IS A PART WHERE WE CRY. BECAUSE WE ARE GOING INTO SOMETHING CALLED THE MULTIPLICATIVE INVERSE.

The statement which is the Multiplicative inverse, is "What times ____ gives you ____?"

And there is a new equation for this. Now, it is:

(-2) x (-4) = +8.

Aaaaaand we're done! Yayayayayayayay

Good job, your explanation is great, very simple yet understandable, you can tell us a little more on why you have 2 different pictures for the question (+8) ÷ (+4) so that they understand that more, just wondering but how did you put the line across your statements, i thought that was cool. but also remember to add a video.
