## Related Questions The answer depends on which properties are being used to prove which rules. When multiplying integers, multiplying by the same sign will always produce a positive integer. Such as a negative times a negative equals a positive. If the signs are different then the product will be a negative. They aren't. The rules are the same as those for adding/subtracting or multiplying integers. Just be careful of the decimal point's location. The rules are not the same.Multiplication is commutative whereas division is not.Multiplication is associative whereas division is not. Placing a question mark at the end of a phrase does not make it a sensible question. Try to use a whole sentence to describe what it is that you want answered. Your "question" sheds no light on what rules for integers you are interested in: rules for addition, subtraction, and so on; rules for multiplying numbers with integer indices, and so on. Adding integers, if they have the same sign, add their absolute values and keep the same sign. Subtracting, change the sign of the 2nd number and the add using rules of addition. Multiplying and dividing, Divide the absolute values, if the signs are the same the answer is positive, if the signs are different the answer is negative. In every possible way- because whole numbers and integers are the same. Integers are real numbers; therefore, when you multiply them you must follow the rules of multiplication. Some rules include: any number multiplied by one equals itself, any number multiplied by zero is zero and every number multiplied by two is an even number. The product or quotient of two numbers that have the same sign is positive. The product or quotient of two numbers with different signs is negative.  It is a negative integer. Its value will depend on the seven integers that you start with.     to subtrct integers ,rewrite as adding opposites and use the rules for addtion of integers..   I am not at all sure that there are any rules that apply to integers in isolation. Any rules that exist are in the context of binary operations like addition or multiplication of integers. when multiplying two positive or two negative the answer should be positive.If there are 2 terms being multiplied, then follow these rulesIf the 2 terms have the same signs, then they are positiveIf the 2 terms have opposite signs, then the product is negativeIf one of the terms are zero, then the product is zero The product of two integers is found by multiplying them. Eg. the product of 5 and 3 is 15.    When multiplying 2 fractions, we multiply the two numerators together and the two denominators together.
