    Hint: When two numbers are multiplied together, the result is positive - when the numbers have the same sign negative - when the numbers have different signs. This will allow you to figure out the answer.

    Please do not use letters to represent your answer. Use the text of the answer itself to confirm what you believe in. Do you think the following is correct (please read again before answering): "Positive, because the products (–5)(–3) and (–8)(–6) are \(\color{red}{negative}\), and the product of two negative numbers is \(\color{blue}{positive}\)" applied to the question:(–5)(–3)(–8)(–6) ?

    With the following in mind, "When \(\color{red}{2~Negatives}\) are Multiplied together the answer is \(\color{blue}{Positive}\) When \(\color{blue}{2~Positives}\) are Multiplied together the answer is \(\color{blue}{Positive}\) When a \(\color{blue}{Positive}\) and a \(\color{red}{Negative}\) is multiplied together the answer is \(\color{red}{Negative}\)" work out the following: (–5)(–3) = positive or negative? (–8)(–6) = positive or negative? so ((–5)(–3)) ((–8)(–6)) = positive or negative
