What rosala has pointed out is somewhat confusing to some people......multiplying two negatives together results in a positive!!!

I like to think of it like this: Let's suppose that you had a bucket with a small hole in it and that it leaks out a quart of water every minute......Then, every minute, you lose one quart of water = (-1). And three minutes ago, (-3), you had.... (-1) x (-3) = 3 more quarts of water in the bucket than you do now........!!!!

Does that make sense???

-2 and -2 are two negative integers! so now we'll multiply them!

=4 ANSWER

i hope uve understood by now and if not then pls be free to ask!
