Negative two times six is equal to what.

To answer this problem, we begin by simply calculating two times six. That’s two lots of six or six lots of two. We know from our times tables that two times six is equal to 12. We also know that the product of a negative number and a positive number — that’s a negative times a positive — is a negative number. That means negative two times six must be negative. And so, the answer is negative 12.
