When you multiply

a negative number by a positive number

then the product is always negative.

When you multiply

a positive number by a negative number

then the product is always negative.

( - 2 ) ( + 3 ) = - 6

( - 4 ) ( 1 ) = - 4

( - 1 ) 2 = - 2

( + 2 ) ( - 2 ) = - 4

( 3 ) ( - 2 ) = - 6

4 ( - 2 ) = - 8
