A multiplication problem has 3 positive factors and 4 negative factors. What is the sign of the product?

I am doing a lesson assessment and need this answered ASAP, please. Is it

A. positive

or

B. negative

You will see the answer if you do this: Multiply a negative number (any 1digit number) by another negative number. Is the result + or -? Multiply that result by another negative number. Keep going. What pattern do you see?

I don't see one. What are you getting at?

a negative times a negative is a positive. A negative times a positive is a negative. Then another negative times that negative is a positive. An odd number of negative factors will produce a negative product. An even number of negative factors will produce a positive product. If this doesn't help, comment again.
