State whether the statements are True or False.

a ÷ (–b) = – (a ÷ b)

Answer :

Take Left Hand Side of the equation.

Left Hand Side can be written as LHS.


LHS = a ÷ (-b)


We can re-write LHS, by taking the negative sign outside of the bracket. Since,


LHS = -(a ÷ b) …(i)


Take Right Hand Side of the same equation.


Right Hand Side can be written as RHS.


RHS = -(a ÷ b) …(ii)


Now, compare equations (i) and (ii),


Notice that,


LHS = -(a ÷ b) and RHS = -(a ÷ b)


This clearly means, LHS = RHS


Thus, this is a true statement.
