when multiplying two positive or two negative the answer should be positive.
If there are 2 terms being multiplied, then follow these rules

If the 2 terms have the same signs, then they are positive

If the 2 terms have opposite signs, then the product is negative

If one of the terms are zero, then the product is zero

When you multiply two integers of the same sign, the answer is always positive. A positive times a positive is positive and a negative times a negative is positive.

In every possible way- because whole numbers and integers are the same.

Like signs give a positive answer. Unlike signs give a negative answer.

Yes. Integers, Real Numbers, and even Complex Numbers can as well.

For the smallest nine integers, the answer is composed entirely of that integer. Past that, this rule goes haywire.

i dunno if this is the answer youre looking for. negative x negative = positive negative x positive = negative positive x positive = positive same thing with dividing integers its really simple.

It is a negative integer. Its value will depend on the seven integers that you start with.

It's a positive number. Here's the rule: In multiplication and division . . . -- If both numbers have the same sign, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is positive. -- If the two numbers have different signs, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is negative.

Multiply two integers disregarding the signs. Then if the signs are the same, the answer is positive and if the signs are different, the answer is negative. Alternatively, if you are multiplying together a whole bunch of numbers, first find the product while ignoring the signs. Then count all the negative numbers. If the count is even, the answer is positive and if it is odd, the answer is negative.

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.

negetive integers are not closed under addition but positive integers are.

The rule for multiplying by 1 is, everything multiplied by 1 is the answer.For example, 2multiplied by 1 is 2.

divide them or multiply then put a negative because to different signs make a negative to of the same signs make a positive

Rule 1: The term is integer, not interger.Rule 2: The answer depends on what you want to do with it or them.

It follows from the definition of multiplication.

One rule is that the product of two integers with unlike signs will have a minus sign for the product.

The rule in dividing integers is to divide the absolute values. Two positive integers or two negative integers equals positive product. If one integer is positive and the other is negative, the product is negative.

The product of two integers is found by multiplying them. Eg. the product of 5 and 3 is 15.

A general rule for multiplying fractions: You shall not multiply the denominator by the whole number,only the numerator.Another rule is you shall make the whole number as a fraction by putting the whole number as the numerator and 1 as the denominator before multiplying it.
