No. The product of two opposite numbers is always negative. Negative x positive = negative and Positive x negative = negative

positive x positive = positive negative x negative = positive negative x positive = negative

A negative number is the opposite of a positive number. If a positive number measures the money you have, then a negative number measures the money you owe. If you multiply two negative numbers together, you are getting the opposite of an opposite. One negative negates the other, leaving you with a positive.

A negative number is an opposite or reversal of a positive number. For example, if a million dollars is a lot of money to have, then it is also true that a million dollars is a lot of money to owe. If you reverse something twice, you return to the original state. So a negative times a negative (or a negative divided by a negative) is a positive. The opposite of the opposite is the original.

The additive opposite is negative 8 (-8). Absolute values are always positive numbers.

Taking the reciprocal (multiplicative inverse) does not affect the positive or negative status of an integer. So the reciprocal of a negative number is negative and the reciprocal of a positive number is positive. The reciprocals will be opposites (positive/negative) just as the original numbers were.
