    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.
