If you multiply two numbers, the result will be positive, if both factors are positive, or if both are negative. Multiplying a positive number by a negative number, or a negative number by a positive number, results in a negative result.For addition, if you add two positive numbers, the result is positive. If you add two negative numbers, the result is negative. If you add a positive and a negative number, the result depends on which of the numbers has the greater absolute value. For example, if the positive number has the greater absolute value (distance from zero), the result will be positive.If you multiply two numbers, the result will be positive, if both factors are positive, or if both are negative.
