Basically we just multiply and put a plus or minus sign. 

If there is an even number of negative numbers, the answer is positive. If there is an odd number of negatives, the answer is negative.

A (-2) (-3) = -2 x  -3 = 6         ( two negatives  even  so answer positive)

B (-2) (3) = -2 x 3 = -6 (one negative odd  so answer nigative)

C (2) (-3) = 2 x -3 = -6   same as  B

D (2)(3) = 2 x 3 = 6   no problem here
