99/100 = 0

It is tempting to think that the answer must be 1, but it is not. 100 goes into 99 zero times, so that is the result.

The normal rules of arithmetic are used to determine the sign of the result of division:

+num/+div == +result | -num/+div == -result | +num/-div == -result | -num/-div == +result |

It is easiest to first calculate the result as if num and div were positive, then apply the above rules. For example:

17/5 == 3 | -17/5 == -3 | 17/-5 == -3 | -17/ -5 == 3 |
