# 4 × (-5) = (-10) × (- 2)

**Solution:**

The requirement of the above question is to prove whether the given statement is true or false.

The given expression is 4 × (-5) = (-10) × (- 2).

Now let us put the integer rules and solve the LHS and RHS part

4 × (-5) = (-10) × (- 2)

-20 ≠ 20

Therefore, using the integer rules, we observed that 4 × (-5) = (-10) × (- 2) is a false statement.

**✦ Try This: **State whether the statement is true or false. 6 × (-5) = (-10) × (- 3).

We can apply integer rules and the order of operations to identify whether 6 × (-5) = (-10) × (- 3) true or false.
