The additive opposite of a positive is a negative, and the opposite of a negative is a positive. If you reverse the sign twice (opposite of opposite) you have the original number. The same applies to an inverse (multiplicative opposite): the inverse of any inverse for a nonzero number is the original number. n (1/n)(n) = n

it depends on if it is negative or positive correlation

Negative in English terms means "opposite." Multiplication can represent "of". So, negative times negative is the "opposite of the opposite." And the opposite of an opposite is the same, hence positive, because "same" is the opposite of "opposite" and positive is the opposite of negative. So if you put it into English words, it actually makes some sense. In essence, negative and negative "cancel out."

No. The product of two opposite numbers is always negative. Negative x positive = negative and Positive x negative = negative
