False.

positive x positive = positive

positive x negative = negative

negative x positive = negative

negative x negative = positive

Every 2 negative factors provides a positive result, so if there are an odd number of negative factors, there are 2n + 1 of them which means the 2n would provide a positive factor to be multiplied by the final negative factor which gives a negative result.
