the product of two integers is between +160 and +200. One integer is between -20 and -40. What is the greatest and least possible value fir the other integer?

The farthest apart numbers if you just look at their absolute value:

-20 * a = 200

a = -10

 

The closest together numbers if you just look at their absolute value.

-40 * b = 160

b = -4

 

The smallest is -10. The biggest is -4.
