A negative. If you have a string of positive and negative numbers multiplied together, all you need to find the sign of the answer is to find the parity of the negative numbers. If there are an odd number of negatives then the answer is negative and if there are an even number of negatives then the answer is positive. Remember, positive numbers make no difference to the sign of the answer.

Pretend both the numbers are positive, find the quotient as normal and then make it negative.

No. Adding negative numbers will make them more negative.

Yes.

That is false. A negative times a negative is always a positive. Since absolute numbers are always positive if you make it negative that is not correct.

2 negatives make a positive

No. Adding negative numbers will make them more negative.

Often, but not always. It depends upon what you do with them. If the numbers are not equal, and you subtract the larger from the smaller, the answer will be negative.

Yes.

Positive + Negative = Negative Negative + Negative = Positive Positive + Positive = Positive Negative + Positive = Negative

Cuz there's nothing to make it negative.... Just think of it as regular multiplying instead... Unless there is a negative...

Yes, if you are adding 2 numbers together and the value of the negative number is larger than the value of the positive number. Yes, if you are multiplying a positive and a negative number together. Yes, if you are dividing a positive and a negative number by each other.

Any rational positive number is still rational when you make the same number negative.
