Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Please 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) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1With 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
