# How do you figure out negative 24 multyplied by the fraction two thirds?

Consider that you have a negative times a positive, so the final result will be negative.

Work out 24 x 2/3 and make sure the result is negative.

When multiplying numbers, there are 2 different cases to think about with regard to the signs of the numbers:

• If the signs of the numbers are the same (positive and positive, or negative and negative) then the result will be positive;
• Otherwise if the signs are different (that is if one number is positive and the other is negative) the result will be negative.
