The sign of the product of four integers depends on the signs of the individual integers. There are 4 cases: 1) When all 4 integers share the same sign and all are non-zero (either all are positive or all are negative), the product is positive. 2) When 3 of the 4 integers share the same sign and all are non-zero (3 are positive and 1 is negative; or 3 are negative and 1 is positive), the product is negative. 3) When 2 of the integers are positive non-zero and the other 2 of the integers are negative non-zero, the product is positive. 4) If even one of the integers is zero, the product is zero (no sign - it is neither positive nor negative).

The product of 2 (or more) positives is positive. The product of 2 negatives is positive. So product of 6 negatives = 3*(product of two negatives) = product of 3 positives = positive. So overall sign is positive.

The product of three positive numbers is positive. The product of three negative numbers is negative.

The product of two integers will be: * Zero, if one factor, or both, are zero. * Positive, if both factors have the same sign (both positive, or both negative) * Negative, if the two factors have different signs. Actually, these rules apply to all real numbers, not just to integers.
