# The product of two terms with like signs is a ____________ term

**Solution:**

The product of two terms with like signs is a ** positive** term.

(+)×(+) = +

(-)×(-)= +

**✦ Try This:** Find the product of (i) 2a and 5b and (ii) -x and -y.

(i) Consider two terms 2a and 5b with positive signs.

Product of these two terms = 2a × 5b = 10ab

10 ab is a positive term.

(ii) Consider two terms -x and -y with negative signs.

Product of these two terms = -x × -y = xy

xy is a positive term.

Hence, if both the like terms are either positive or negative, then the resultant term will always be positive.
