There is no secret to solving these problems. Since the order of division doesn't matter, be ready to rearrange the numbers if it makes things easier.

**Example 1: 48 ÷ 3 ÷ 8 = ___**

- 48 ÷ 3 =
**16** - 16 ÷ 8 =
**2**

**Example 2: 24 ÷ (-8) ÷ (-1) = ___**

- 24 ÷ (-8) =
**-3** - -3 ÷ (-1) =
**3**

**Example 3: -36 ÷ (-9) ÷ (-2) = ___**

- -36 ÷ (-9) =
**4** - 4 ÷ (-2) =
**-2**

**Example 4: 64 ÷ 16 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 = ___**

- 64 ÷ 16 =
**4** - 4 ÷ 2 =
**2** - 2 ÷ 2 =
**1**

**Example 5: 48 ÷ 2 ÷ 4 ÷ 3 = ___**

- 48 ÷ 2 =
**24** - 24 ÷ 4 =
