    If the 1/2 is also negative then it would be\[3y\]

    \[\sqrt{a}\times \sqrt{a}= a\]

    Or \[(a ^{1/2 }) x (a ^{1/2})=a ^{(1/2 + 1/2)}= a ^{1}=a\]

    (-2)(-3)=+6 Multiplication when signs are alike. Although you were confusing about the signs.

    (-1/2)(-6)= 3 see above.

    :/ I'm using the foil method and I'm not getting it. Thanks.

    I just multiplied the two terms as they were each enclosed by parentheses (no need to foil)

    so all you did was mutiply 1/2 by -6 and mulitplied radical y by radical y. so then you get -3y?

    Yes, I believe that was the problem.
