Lesson 1.2.1

Multiplying with Integers
Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers California Standard: Number Sense 2.3 Solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems, including those arising in concrete situations, that use positive and negative integers and combinations of these operations. What it means for you: You’ll see what happens when you multiply positive and negative whole numbers. Key words: integer product factor

Multiplying with Integers
Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers You’ve seen how to use a number line to show what happens when you add or subtract positive and negative integers. –4… …plus 9… …equals 5. In this Lesson you’ll see how it can be useful for doing multiplication problems too.

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Multiplication Is All About Grouping Things Multiplication is really a way of adding together groups of objects. = + There are 6 blocks in total, so 2 × 3 = 6. For instance, 2 × 3 just means “2 groups of 3.” There are still 6 blocks, so 3 × 2 = 6. Doing “3 groups of 2” gives the same result. + = You can do the same kind of grouping and counting on the number line.

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Example 1 Show the answer to 2 × 3 using a number line. Solution You can show the answer with 2 arrows, each of length 3: 3 2 × 3 is twice as far from 0 as 3 is. 6 You could show the same answer with 3 arrows of length 2: 2 3 × 2 is three times as far from 0 as 2 is. 6

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Multiplying by a Negative Changes the Direction Even if you’re multiplying by a negative, you’re still dealing with groups. So 3 × (–2) still means “3 groups of –2.” 2 You can see from this number line that 3 × (–2) = –6. Just like in Example 1, there are 3 arrows of length 2 on the number line, but this time the negative sign means they’re pointing left.

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Example 3 The outside temperature at midnight was 0 °F. Every hour after that, the temperature dropped by 3 °F. What was the temperature at 5 a.m.? Solution The change in temperature is –3 °F each hour for five hours. So you need to solve 5 × (–3). –3 This shows that 5 × (–3) = –15, so at 5 a.m. the temperature was –15 °F. Solution follows…

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Guided Practice What multiplication is shown on each number line? 4 × (–10) 10 × (–4) 6. What conclusion can you make from Exercises 4 and 5? 4 × (–10) is the same as 10 × (–4). It doesn’t matter which number the negative sign belongs to — the answer is the same. Solution follows…

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Guided Practice 11. A submarine changes its depth in the water by –25 feet per minute. What is its total change in depth in four minutes? –25 × 4 = –100 feet 12. A bird is flying toward the ground. Its height changes by –16 feet per second. What is the bird’s total change in height in 5 seconds? –16 × 5 = –80 feet 13. The amount of fuel in a racing car changes by –6 gallons per lap. What is the change in its fuel load over 7 laps? –6 × 7 = –42 gallons Solution follows…

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers A Negative Times a Negative Equals a Positive You’ve already seen that multiplying a positive integer by a negative integer results in a negative solution. –4 × 2 = –8 But if you multiply one negative number by another, their “–” signs cancel each other out.

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Example 4 Calculate –3 × (–2). Solution You know that 3 × (–2) means “3 groups of –2”, and 3 × (–2) = –6. The extra negative sign in –3 × (–2) changes the sign again. The answer must be positive: –3 × –2 = 6 Solution follows…

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers You can multiply any two integers using the following rules: Rules for multiplying integers For example: positive × positive = positive 2 × 3 = 6 For example: positive × negative = negative 2 × (–3) = –6 For example: negative × positive = negative (–2) × 3 = –6 For example: negative × negative = positive (–2) × (–3) = 6

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers You can use these rules even if you’re multiplying more than two numbers together. Just count the number of “–” signs in the question. Rules for multiplying integers positive × positive = positive positive × negative = negative negative × positive = negative negative × negative = positive If there’s an even number of negative factors, they’ll cancel out in pairs, and the answer will be positive. If there’s an odd number of negative factors, you’ll end up with one that doesn’t cancel out, so the final answer will be negative.

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Example 6 Solve –2 × 5 × (–4) × (–10). Solution –2 × 5 × (–4) × (–10) has three minus signs. This is an odd number, so the answer will be negative. Work out the “size” of the number by finding: 2 × 5 × 4 × 10 = 400 So the answer must be –400. Solution continues… Solution follows…

Lesson 1.2.1 Multiplying with Integers Example 6 Solution (continued) To prove that the answer is –400, you can break the question down into smaller parts: –2 × 5 × (–4) × (–10) = –10 × (–4) × –10 Negative × positive = negative = 40 × (–10) Negative × negative = positive = –400 Now, positive × negative = negative
