The fact that the product of two negatives is a positive is therefore related to the fact that the inverse of the inverse of a positive number is that positive number back again.

Is a negative times a negative times a negative a positive?

Ideally, the second negative should change the sign of our original number (which is also negative). So, our original negative sign is changed into a positive sign when a negative is multiplied to it. Thus, As multiplying with negative will change the sign, a negative times a negative equal a positive.

### What are the four rules of negatives?

The Rules:

Rule Example
+(+) Two like signs become a positive sign 3+(+2) = 3 + 2 = 5
−(−) 6−(−3) = 6 + 3 = 9
+(−) Two unlike signs become a negative sign 7+(−2) = 7 − 2 = 5
−(+) 8−(+2) = 8 − 2 = 6

### What is the correct order of operations?
