When you raise a number to any power x, you multiply it by itself x times. Because 1 times anything is itself, multiplying 1 by itself any number of times will still give you 1.

It becomes the negative of itself. for example -1 times 5 becomes -5

The result of multiplying 20,000,000,000 by 99,999,999,999,999,999,999 is 1,999,999,999,999,999,999,800,000,000,000.

Multiplying by one (1) is the Identity Property in Multiplication. You always get the same number as the answer. It does not matter how many times you multiply by 1. The answer is 1

your answer will be the result of 999 times 9

The cube of -1 is, in fact -1. (if -1 x -1 = 1, which is the squared term, then the cube is one more multiple: 1 x (-1) = -1

The product of two numbers A and B is the result of multiplying A with B. This equals adding A to itself B times. The product of 3 and 5 is 3 x 5 = 5 + 5 + 5 = 15.

That means negative, so it is probably negative 4 which is like this. -1 -1 -1 -1= -4 Multiplying a number by a negative number changes the sign, while multiplying by 1 just keeps it at the same number. -1*-1*-1*-1 1*1 1 The answer is 1.

Because 1 x -1 = -1, and anyway "two negatives make a positive". Multiplying two negative numbers will result in a positive number. Summing two negative numbers will result in a negative number.

100 yes anything time 1 will always be the other mutable for example 1x1000=1000 it's like 0+1000 only with one and it's multiplying

Same as the number you times it by

(x+1)(x-1) ;)
