# A Positive Times a Negative

- Represent each multiplication problem on a number line. Write the product as an equation.
- Write a rule about the sign of the product of a positive integer and a negative integer.

## Hint:

- Regardless of the order of the factors, the positive integer will always indicate the number of times that the negative integer should be repeated.
- How does the product compare to the product you would get if you ignored the negative sign?
