Multiply Positive and Negative Numbers

Monday, June 24, 2024


When you multiply two negative numbers, is the answer a negative or positive number?
Follow these two simple rules in order to multiply properly.

1. When both signs are the same, the answer will be positive.

2. When one sign is positive, and one is negative, the answer will be negative.

For example,

-5 x -4 = 20

-5 x 4 = 20

3 x 6 = 18

-4 x - = 24

This same rule applies to division of two integers.
