3 negative numbers are three negative numbers.

There are a lot of things you can do with them:

-- You can add them up. Their sum is always a negative number.

-- You can add two of them and subtract the third one from the sum. The result

could be a positive number or it could be a negative number. It depends on the

three negative numbers you started with.

-- You can multiply them all together. The product is always a negative number.

-- You can multiply all of their absolute values together. The product is always

a positive number.

-- You can multiply two of them, and divide the product by the third one.

The result is always a negative number.

-- You can multiply two of them, then raise the product to the power of

the third one. The result is always a positive number.

-- You can divide one of them by another one, then raise the quotient to

the power of the third one. The result is always a positive number.

But, as I said at the top, 3 negative numbers are never anything else other than

three negative numbers.
