# Signs of Products or Quotients of Signed Numbers

Very briefly, we state the familiar rule here:

 (+) times (+) gives (+) (+) divided by (+) gives (+) (+) times (-) gives (-) (+) divided by (-) gives (-) (-) times (+) gives (-) (-) divided by (+) gives (-) (-) times (-) gives (+) (-) divided by (-) gives (+)

So, when multiplying two numbers, or when dividing one number by a second number,

the result is positive if both numbers have the same sign

the result is negative if the two numbers have opposite signs.

So, for example:

(+2) Ã— (+3) = +6

(+2) Ã— (-3) = -6

(-2) Ã— (+3) = -6

(-2) Ã— (-3) = +6

and

(+6) divided by (+2) gives +3

(+6) divided by (-2) gives -3

(-6) divided by (+2) gives -3

(-6) divided by (-2) gives +3
