Let's dive into solving word problems that involve multiplying and dividing negative numbers together.

Negative numbers represent values less than zero. For example, if you owe $5, your bank balance is -5.

When you multiply two negative numbers, the result is positive. For example, (-2) * (-3) = 6. Think of it as "two negatives make a positive."

When you divide a negative number by another negative number, the result is positive. For example, (-6) ÷ (-2) = 3. Again, "two negatives make a positive."

Let's solve some word problems together to solidify our understanding of multiplying and dividing negative numbers.
