A positive number.

Step-by-step explanation:

A negative number multiply by another positive number will give you a negative number.

(-5) (-2) (-7) (-6)

So (-5) x (-2) will give you 10.

(-5) (-2) (-7) (-6)

= 10 (-7) (-6)

Then 10 x (-7) will you - 70.

10 (-7) (-6)

= - 70 (-6)

And - 70 x (-6) will give you 420.

-70 (-6)

= 420

positive

Step-by-step explanation:

If an even amount of negative numbers are multiplied then the answer will be a positive number.

If an odd amount of negative numbers are multiplied then the answer will be a negative number.

This is because two negative cancel out to make a positive, so if there are an even amount of negatives then they will all cancel out evenly.

In this problem there are 4 negative numbers, which is an even number, so the sign of the product (answer) will be positive.
