negative 15

-12*-3 creates positive 36 (because of double negative) Multiply 36 by 2 and you get 72. The answer is positive 72.

negative 3 times

A negative or a positive! It depends on the question.EXAMPLES-7 + 3 = -4 ( a negative answer)-7 + 8 = 1 (a positive answer)IF you mean a negative times a positive, the answer is negative:-3 x 5 = -15

No, a negative number times a negative number will equal a positive answer. e.g. -2 x-2 = 4 (a positive 4) e.g. -3 x -3 = 9 (positive)

+*-=-. Example. 3*-3=-9.

I. Addition 1. Positive + Positive = Positive ( +3 PLUS +3 = +6) 2. Negative + Negative = Negative (-3 PLUS -3 = -6) 3. Positive + Negative OR Negative + Positive Subtract the numbers then copy the sign of the number with greater value. (+5 PLUS -3 = +2) (-5 PLUS +3 = -2) II. Subtraction Change the sign of the subtrahend then the follow the rules of addition above. Examples: +5 MINUS -3 = +5 +3 = +8 +5 MINUS +3 = +5 -3 = +2 III. Multiplication 1. Positive x Positive = Positive (+3 times +5= +15) 2. Negative x Negative = Positive (-3 times -5 = +15) 3. Positive x Negative = Negative (+3 times -5 = -15) 4. Negative x Positive = Negative (-3 times +5 = -15) IV. Division Same rules as in multiplication Note: Like signs when multiplied or divided together = Positive Unlike signs when multiplied or divided together = Negative

The cube of a negative number is negative. Negative times negative is positive, but then you have the third multiplication, and positive times negative is negative. So for example (-2)3 = -8.
