Yes, any time you multiply a negative by a negative, it automatically becomes a positive.

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... Since the number of negative numbers is odd, the end result is negative.The 2 positive integers don't affect the sign.

No, because the inverse function would not work. Every time you multiply a positive by a positive you get a positive.

The first stage in dividing by a negative mixed number would be to convert that number into a top-heavy or vulgar fraction. Once this has been done, you ignore the negative sign for the time being, and multiply the number by the denominator. After this, you divide by the numerator. Finally, you swap the sign of the number you started with. If you were dividing a negative number the answer is positive. If you were dividing a positive number the answer is negative.

A positive times a negative is a negative.

Positive time negative = Negative.

Positive

No a negative time a positive equals a negative.

Yes, the only time a quotient is negative is when a negative and a positive number are divided.

No. It is actually a negative. Yes it is positive. Previous answer was incorrect. Negative times negative = positive. example: -5 x -5 = +25

Any time that a negative number is being multipled by another negative number, it equals a positive number. In this case, -1 multiplied by -1 equals 1. Another example of this is -5 multiplied by -5 which equals 25. Though if you multiply a negative by a positve, it equals a negative. If you were to multiply a positive by a positve, it will always equal a positve.
