4 and -4?
It means of all the options, when you multiply them, it gives the lowest result.
let the numbers be x and y x-y=8 so y=x-8 xy=minimum substitute (x-8) in y and substitute y for min x(x-8)=y y=x^2-8x now complete the square y=(x-4)^2-16 x=4 substitute in first equation 4-y=8 y=-4 so the numbers are 4,-4

logically, the largest product is a square. Since you want the lowest, there is a change with one of the numbers being negative (plus/minus version of same number), giving you the largest negative number. So we use our difference to tell us how far in each direction we travel from zero.
