your diagram would look like this: first roll > second roll > (+ or ) > + > + + >  >  > + >   >  > + so you have a 50% chance of getting a negative number

I'm not sure why the 1/6 is there in their answer. Since the question only asks if the product will be positive or negative only the signs on the numbers count.
