**
MULTIPLICATION OF NEGATIVE NUMBERS**

**Multiplication is a shorter way of adding. For instance 5 x 3 = 5 + 5 + 5 =
15**

**What does -5 x 3 = answer**

**It is more difficult to understand why -4 x (-2) = 8 But
the rule is a negative **

**times a negative gives an answer that is positive.**

**Try this example -3 x (-2) x 4 x (-5) =
answer**
