How to Multiply Integers?
Integers are a set of positive and negative numbers including zero. They do not have any fractional or decimal part. Multiplication of integers is the same as the multiplication of whole numbers, except for a few rules related to the positive and negative sign.
When we multiply integers, we come across three combinations of numbers:
- Multiplication of 2 positive numbers
- Multiplication of 2 negative numbers
- Multiplication of 1 positive and 1 negative number
The sign of the product of the above combination of numbers depends on the following rules:
Types of Integers | Result | Example |
If both integers are positive | Positive | 2 × 5 = 10 |
If both integers are negative | Positive (Two negatives make a positive) | –2 × –3 = 6 |
If 1 is positive and 1 is negative |
Negative | –2 × 5 = –10 |
Solved Example:
Mulltiply (-6) by 9.
Solution:
To multiply (-6) by 9, we will use the third rule given in the table above, where the sign of the product will be negative.
Therefore, the product of (-6) × 9 = -54.
Now try to use the calculator to multiply the following integers:
- 4 × (-12)
- (-9) × (-9)
