What is the sign of the product of 11 negative integers and 2 positive integers?

The 2 positive integers don't affect the sign. Every time you multiply by a negative number, the sign changes, so you have negative, positive, negative, positive...

When a negative number is subtracted from a positive number is the difference always positive?

Yes, a negative number subtracted from a positive number will always be positive. Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the opposite of the negative number. The opposite of a negative number is always positive. A positive number plus a positive number is always positive.

What can you say about positive integers and negative integers?

Positive numbers are any numbers greater than zero.For example: 1, 2.9, 3.14159, 40000, and 0.0005.Negative numbers are any number less than zero.For Example: -1, -2.9, -3.14159, -40000, and -0.0005.For each positive number, there is a negative number that is its opposite. We write the opposite of a positive number with a negative or minus sign in front of the number, and call these numbers negative numbers.We do not consider zero to be a positive or negative number.The sum of any number and its (negative) opposite is 0.The sign of a number refers to whether the number is positive or negative.For example: The sign of -3.2 is negative, and the sign of 442 is positive.We may also write positive and negative numbers as fractions or mixed numbers.
