Multiplying integers is just multiplying the numbers normally but there are 2 conditions to remember:

1. If the two integers have the same sign, then their product is positive.

2. If the two integers have different signs, then their product is negative.

6 and –9 have different signs. So the product is negative.

6 x 9 = 54

The product is –54.

–8 and –7 have the same sign. So the product is positive.

8 x 7 = 56

The product is 56.
