Let's use N to represent any number.N x N = NN x -N = -N-N x -N = NSo the rules are:A positive integer times a positive integer will be a positive integerA positive integer times a negative integer will be a negative integerA negative integer times a negative integer will be a positive integer.

A negative integer. Every time.

The quotient of a positive integer by a negative is always negative. Say this to yourself a couple times: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

The smallest positive integer is 1. 1 is the multiplicative identity; ie anything times 1 is itself. The greatest negative integer is the most positive negative integer which is -1. Therefore the product of the greatest negative integer and the smallest positive integer is the greatest negative integer which is -1.

Negative, as for example: 5 times -4 = -20

when you have a negative times a negative it will equal a positive but when you have a negative times a positive it will equal a negative no matter what!

I honestly don't know :D but heres something to help you "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

Negative times positive equals negative.

-10 x -5 = +50A negative times a negative will always equal a positive number.A negative times a positive will always equal a negative number.A positive times a positive will always equal a positive number.- x - = +- x + = -+ x + = +

That depends on which number is greater. ex: (9)+(-4)= +5 -- because the 9 is a larger number. Also, the use of a number line will really help. ...-5 _-4_ -3_ -2_ -1_ 0_ 1_ 2_ 3_ 4_ 5... just start on one of the numbers and then travel to the right (if the other number is positive) , or the left ( if the other number is negative) and you will land on your answer. keep in mind that 5+(-2)= 3 is the same as 5-2= 3 Hope this helps...and if you were asking "Is a positive number TIMES a negative number negative?", the answer is yes.
