### Lesson Excerpt:

II. One Step Equations with Division

- "We have learned how to solve equations with addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Now we are going to learn how to solve the last kind - division."

- "Before we look at an example, let's review the rules for dividing negative numbers. Not all of the problems will have negatives in them, but some of them will."

- "Who can tell me the rules for dividing negative numbers?"

- On Board: A negative divided by a negative = a positive

A positive divided by a positive = a positive
