No.

If the signs of the two numbers are the same, the result is positive

3 x 4 = +12 and -5 x -7 = +35

If the signs of the two numbers are different, the result is negative

+6 x -8 = -48

Would 3 negative numbers be a positive number?

3 negative numbers are three negative numbers. There are a lot of things you can do with them: -- You can add them up. Their sum is always a negative number. -- You can add two of them and subtract the third one from the sum. The result could be a positive number or it could be a negative number. It depends on the three negative numbers you started with. -- You can multiply them all together. The product is always a negative number. -- You can multiply all of their absolute values together. The product is always a positive number. -- You can multiply two of them, and divide the product by the third one. The result is always a negative number. -- You can multiply two of them, then raise the product to the power of the third one. The result is always a positive number. -- You can divide one of them by another one, then raise the quotient to the power of the third one. The result is always a positive number. But, as I said at the top, 3 negative numbers are never anything else other than three negative numbers.

Why does the product of 4 negative numbers equal a positive?

If you know that the product of 2 negative numbers is positive, then the product of 4 negative numbers has to be positive. The product of the first two negative numbers is positive and the next two negative numbers is positive. Multiplying the product of the first two numbers (positive number) and the product of the last two numbers (also positive), is a positive number times a positive number which is positive. Let a, b, c and d be negative numbers: (a*b*c*d) = (a*b)*(c*d) (-ve*-ve*-ve*-ve)=(-ve*-ve)*(-ve*-ve)= (+ve)*(+ve) = (+ve)
