Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In a long product of many factors, count the number of negatives. An odd number of negatives gives a negative result. An even number of negatives gives a positive result.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Any number of only positive factors has a positive product. Any number of positive factors and one single negative factor has a negative product. The reason an odd number of negatives gives a negative result is that for any odd number of negatives, there will always be one negative left over. Every two negatives multiply together to be positive, but since there is an odd number of negatives, there is one negative left over. That negative makes the product negative.
