Write five pairs of integers (a, b) such that a ÷ b = –3. One such pair is (6, –2) because 6 ÷ (–2) = (–3).

<div>Here are five pairs of integers (a, b) explained in a more detailed manner, such that a ÷ b = -3:
</div><div>
</div><div>(9, -3): When we divide 9 by -3, we get -3 as the quotient. So, 9 ÷ (-3) = -3. This means that if we divide 9 into groups of -3, we would have -3 groups in total.</div><div>
</div><div>(-15, 5): When we divide -15 by 5, we obtain -3 as the quotient. Therefore, -15 ÷ 5 = -3. This implies that if we divide -15 into groups of 5, we would end up with -3 groups.</div><div>
</div><div>(12, -4): Dividing 12 by -4 gives us -3 as the quotient. Hence, 12 ÷ (-4) = -3. This indicates that if we divide 12 into groups of -4, the total number of groups would be -3.</div><div>
</div><div>(-21, 7): If we divide -21 by 7, the quotient is -3. So, -21 ÷ 7 = -3. This implies that if we divide -21 into groups of 7, the number of groups would be -3.</div><div>
</div><div>(30, -10): Dividing 30 by -10 yields -3 as the quotient. Thus, 30 ÷ (-10) = -3. This means that if we divide 30 into groups of -10, the total number of groups would be -3.</div><div>
</div><div>These pairs of integers satisfy the condition where the quotient obtained by dividing a by b is equal to -3. </div>

We have to find the five pairs of a and b such that , a ÷ b = –3.

So, firstly we have given an example where a=6,b=-2

More examples we can think are:

1. a=15,b=-5

2. a=-18,b=6

3. a=9, b=-3

4. a=12,b=-4

5. a= 21, b=-7
