If x is positive and y = -x, then xy is negative.

Is this always true or sometimes true?

**LALA**, Saturday, October 24, 2009 at 3:20pmFalse. If x is positive and you put a negative in front of it, you have to divide by negative one which would then give you positive x again. If you multiply a positive x and a positive y then xy is positive. False. Hope that helps.!!!:)

What do you get when you multiply a positive by a negative?
