When you add a positive integer and a negative integer, you sometimes get a negative result and sometimes get a positive result. Is the same true when you multiply a positive integer and a negative integer?

    Multiplication of Integers is similar to multiplication of whole numbers (both positive) except the sign of the product needs to be determined.

    If both the factors are positive, the product will be positive.

    If both the factors are negative, the product will be positive.

    If only one of the factors is negative, the product will be negative.

    In other words, if the signs are the same the product will be positive, if they are different, the product will be negative.
