No. Two negative integers added together will never equal a positive integer. It is the product of two negative integers that is positive.

The product of two negative numbers is a positive number. Ergo, the product of the square of a number is equal to the square of its negative equivalent.

If two numbers have the same sign, their product is positive. If two numbers have opposite signs, their product is negative. So the answer is 'yes'.

Because two negative multiplied together equal a positive. So after the first multiplication we have a positive and a negative. When we multiply these we have a negative.

No. The product of two opposite numbers is always negative. Negative x positive = negative and Positive x negative = negative

The product of negative number and a positive number is always a negative. The product of two positive numbers, or two negative numbers, is always a positive.

There are no two consecutive integers, negative or positive, whose product is 440.

If you know that the product of 2 negative numbers is positive, then the product of 4 negative numbers has to be positive. The product of the first two negative numbers is positive and the next two negative numbers is positive. Multiplying the product of the first two numbers (positive number) and the product of the last two numbers (also positive), is a positive number times a positive number which is positive. Let a, b, c and d be negative numbers: (a*b*c*d) = (a*b)*(c*d) (-ve*-ve*-ve*-ve)=(-ve*-ve)*(-ve*-ve)= (+ve)*(+ve) = (+ve)

The same as +4 times +8. The product of two negative numbers is positive.

No the product of two integers will not always be a positive, because if you multiply a positive and a negative you'll get a negative.

The product of two negative integers is positive as for example -4 times -5 = 20
