# State whether the statements are true (T) or false (F).The product of two negative terms is a negative term.

Let us understand this by an example.

Let two negative terms be -a and -b.

Multiplying these two negative terms.

-a × -b = (-1) × (-1) × ab

-a × -b = +1 × ab [, -1 × -1 = 1]

-a × -b = +ab

The product of -a and -b came out to be ab (positive term).

Whenever two negative terms are multiplied, the product is always positive as the two negatives forms a positive.

Hence, this statement is false.
