Remember that a fraction is equivalent to division. That is, the fraction a/b is equivalent to a÷b.
Therefore, 42 is equivalent to 4÷2.
The quotient of two numbers with opposite signs is negative and the quotient of two numbers with the same sign is positive.
Since −4 and 2 have opposite signs, then 4÷2 will equal a negative number.
Since 4÷2=2, then 4÷2=2
