Multiplying Decimals What sign does your answer have when you multiply the following: Positive x Positive = Positive Negative x Negative = Positive Negative x Positive = Negative How do you determine how many decimal places should go in your answer when multiplying two decimals? Count the decimal places of the numbers you are multiplying, your answer should have the same number.
