Multiplying and Dividing Integers

When multiplying and dividing integers, perform the operation as if both integers are positive and then change the sign of the answer as follows: If both integers have the same sign, the product is positive; if they have different signs, the product is negative. For example, 3(5)=15 and -3(-15)=15; 2(-6)=-12 and -2(6)=-12.
