( - 50) large div  50 = -1

If the signs of the two numbers are different, the quotient is always a negative number.

This diagram shows the rules that govern when we divide two integers with different signs. The first case implies that a positive integer divided by a negative integer results to an answer of an integer with a negative sign. Likewise, a negative integer divided by a positive integer outputs an integer with a negative sign as well. In summary, the quotient of two integers with different signs will always yield a negative integer solution.

To get the answer as -1, the sign of the blank should be opposite to (-5) that is the answer is 50.
