No. Any number of positive factors will lead to a positive product.

The two pairs of numbers are (1, 1/2) and (-1/2, -1).

The greatest common factor, or GCF, is the largest positive integer that will divide evenly with no remainder into all the members of a given set of numbers. The least common multiple, or LCM, is the smallest positive integer that all the members of a given set of numbers will divide into evenly with no remainder. The product of those two numbers is the answer when they are multiplied together.

Without knowing what the product is, it will be difficult to help. Presumably, you can tell the difference between even and odd numbers. If you are trying to predict, the product of two evens is even, the product of two odds is odd and the product of an even and an odd is even.

If the two numbers have no prime factors in common, their LCM will be their product. If there are prime factors in common, their LCM will be less than their product.

The difference of their cubes is 4.

because you can get a positive number as EITHER a product of 2 positive numbers OR the product of the negatives of the SAME 2 numbers; the product of 2 negative numbers is positive.

if 2 positive numbers are multiplied, then the product is positive. if 2 negative numbers are multiplied, the product is positive. if a positive and a negative number are multiplied, the product is negative.

It is positive. Any product of an even number of negative numbers will be positive, regardless of how many positive numbers you have. Similarly any product of an odd number of negative numbers will be negative, regardless of how many positive numbers you have.

It is a positive.

The product of two positive numbers or two negative numbers is a positive number.

Negative because product of 47 negative numbers is negative and product of three positive number is Positive , so negative*positive = Negative.

If you know that the product of 2 negative numbers is positive, then the product of 4 negative numbers has to be positive. The product of the first two negative numbers is positive and the next two negative numbers is positive. Multiplying the product of the first two numbers (positive number) and the product of the last two numbers (also positive), is a positive number times a positive number which is positive. Let a, b, c and d be negative numbers: (a*b*c*d) = (a*b)*(c*d) (-ve*-ve*-ve*-ve)=(-ve*-ve)*(-ve*-ve)= (+ve)*(+ve) = (+ve)
