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.
