Any even number

If the exponent is an even number you can drop the negative, because is you were to multiply it out the negatives would cancel out.

a positive number..... 2 negatives=positive

yes

If you multiply a negative number with a positive number, the result will be negative. If you multiply two negatives, the result will be positive.

If you multiply any even number by an even number, the product is an even number.

With an odd number of negative numbers included in the equation, the product is always negative; if there is an even number of negatives, it would be positive. This is because it takes two negatives to cancel each other out and make a positive, but with an odd amount, one is left uncancelled.

If you are multiplying a negative number times a negative number, you multiply regularly but the answer in negative. If you are multipling 2 negatives, you multiply it regularly, again, but the answer is positive, and if u multiply 2 positives, obviously its a positive.

This happens because a negative number is dominant over a positive one, so the number will multiply just as if you were multiplying even numbers, but at the end, just put a negative symbol. Also, if you multiply two negatives, they cancel themselves out, and the answer just becomes positive, but that only goes when multiplying an even amount of negative numbers together. For all of these, do the equation the same way, but at the end you may have to just add or take away a negative or positive symbol.

An even number.

The product is negative. An odd number of negatives means the answer will be negative. An even number of negatives means the answer will be positive.

You get an even number as your answer.

If you multiply an odd number by an even number, the product (answer) will be even. Example: 5 x 4 = 20

Yes two negatives do make a positive if you multiply.

you would get an even number!

False. The product of an odd number of negatives is negative.

A negative number squared equals a positive number. When multiplying, odd numbers of negatives result in a negative answer, and even numbers of negatives result in a positive answer.

because four is an even number

The product is even.

Even square numbers are even, by definition. Two even numbers multiplied together give an even number so no, they cannot multiply to give an odd number. You have to multiply an even number by an odd number to do this.

The first even number is 1*2.The second even number is 2*2 and so on. So the hundredth even number is 100*2 = 200.

an even number.

Yes, an even number multiplied by an odd number or an even number will give you an even number.

Adding negatives? You get a negative. But if you multiply/divide 2 negatives, that's a positive.

That is also called an even number. To get a list of even numbers, multiply 0x2, 1x2, 2x2, 3x2, etc. (or just add 2 to any even number, to get the next even number).That is also called an even number.
