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)

Depend on which is larger, that will determine whether your answer is positive or negative. For example -9 + 3 = -6. Polarity (so to speak) will be the larger value.

A negative divided by a negative is a positive. Having established that, you can ignore the negative signs. So you are left with (14/5) / (31/3) = (9/5) / (10/3) = (9/5) * (3/10) = 27/50 or 0.54
