Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0quotient = divide product = multiply the product of two `negative ` numbers would be positive the product of two positive numbers would be positive when you divide two`negative` numbers you will get positive number so in short the product and division of two numbers with same signs would be `positive` and with different signs it will give you `negative ` answer here are some example 2 times 2 = `4` ( both numbers are negative ) 2 times 2 = `4` (both numbers are positive ) 2 times 2 =4 ( different sign so answer would be negative ) division 2/2 =1 ( same signs = positive answer ) 4/2 = 2 ( different signs = negative answer )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so this is the answer? quotient = divide product = multiply the product of two negative numbers would be positive. the product of two positive numbers would be positive. when you divide two`negative` numbers you will get positive number. the product and division of two numbers with same signs would be positive and with different signs it will give you a negative answer For example : 2 times 2 = 4 ( both numbers are negative ) 2 times 2 = 4 (both numbers are positive ) So since both numbers are negative the answer becomes a positive.
