If your positive and negative number are the same does it become a negative number or positive number?

It depends on what you are doing to the two identical numbers. If you are multiplying them, it becomes a negative. If you are dividing them, it becomes a negative. If you are adding them, it will always be zero (e.g., 2+ -2 = 0, etc.). There are two ways to subtract. If you are subtracting a positive from a negative, the number remains negative. If you are subtracting a negative from a positive, or a negative from a negative, the negative becomes a positive and you just add from there.

Why multiplication of negative numbers equals positive?

When you multiply any number by a negative number you reverse its sign. So positive numbers become negative, and negative numbers become positive. That is the meaning of negative multiplication; it is reversal. This is similar to the way that adding a negative number has the same effect as subtracting a positive number. Negative is the opposite of positive.
