The product of negative number and a positive number is always a negative. The product of two positive numbers, or two negative numbers, is always a positive.

The product of two positive numbers or two negative numbers is a positive number.

A product that results in a negative number such as multiplication of a positive number with a negative number resulting in a negative number, a negative product.

A negative number times a positive number will give you a negative product.A negative number times a positive number will give you a negative product.A negative number times a positive number will give you a negative product.A negative number times a positive number will give you a negative product.

The product of two negative numbers is a positive number. Ergo, the product of the square of a number is equal to the square of its negative equivalent.

The product of two negative numbers results in a positive number.

The product of two numbers is the two numbers multiplied together. When multiplying a positive number and a negative number, the answer is always negative. For example: 7*-3= -21

The product is also a whole number. If the (number of positive factors) minus the (number of negative factors) is zero or an even number, then the product is positive. Otherwise the product is negative.

False. Either the product or the quotient of two negative numbers is positive.False. Either the product or the quotient of two negative numbers is positive.False. Either the product or the quotient of two negative numbers is positive.False. Either the product or the quotient of two negative numbers is positive.

The product is negative. An odd number of negatives means the answer will be negative. An even number of negatives means the answer will be positive.

If there is any zero in the set of integers, their product is zero.If there is an odd number of negative integers, then the product is negative, whereas if there is an even number of negative values, the product is positive.

If two numbers have different signs, then their product is negative. If two numbers have the same sign, then their product is positive.

No. The sum of two negative numbers will always be a negative number. If, however, you multiply the numbers, their product will be positive.

No, it can't be. The product of an odd number of negatives is negative.The product of an even number of negatives is positive.(The product of each two of your 6 negatives is positive, so you wind upwith the product of three positive numbers.)

The product of a positive and negative number is always negative The sum of a positive and negative number depends on which one is larger; subtract the two numbers and take the sign of the larger

This is not strictly true, because an absolute value, and hence the product of two absolute values can be zero. It is, therefore true to say that the product of two absolute values is always non-negative. An absolute value of a number is, by definition, non-negative. And by the definition of multiplication, the product of two non-negative numbers in non-negative.

False. The product of an odd number of negatives is negative.

A product is the answer when you multiply numbers or terms together. The product of two positive numbers is positive. ie. 2x2=4. The product of two negative numbers is positive. ie -(2)x(-2)=4 The product of a negative number and positive number is a negative number. ie. (-2)x 2=-4 In general, multiply the numbers as you normally would, and if the signs are different. the product is negative. If the signs are all the same, the product is positive. Remember that if a negative number is outside brackets, the question might be approached a bit differently.

Multiplying something by a negative number makes it change signs. A positive number multiplied by a negative is negative therefore a negative * a negative is positive.

It could be because x is already negative, and the product of two negative numbers is a positive one.

You multiply the numbers just like you would normally except that the product will have a negative sign. Example: -6 X 5 = -30. When you multiply a negative number and a positive number, the product will always be negative. Multiplying two positive numbers or two negative numbers will give you positive products.
