would you be able to give me an explanation on how to complete these question aka shown work??

ya sure ..

Whenever you want to multiply two numbers with the same sign, the sign of the product is always positive.

so 2 * 3 = +6

= 6

Similarly -2 * -3 = +6 or simply 6

Whenever you  want to multiply two numbers with different signs, the sign of the product is always negative.

so 2 * (-3)  = -6

Similarly -2 * 3 = -6

BTW y have you posted the same question multiple times?
