It would be a positive 25(+25) because a negative times a negative equals a positive(-x-=+)

It's positive 25  because:

- positive times positive is positive

- negative times negative is positive

- and, negative times positive is negative

I know a negative times a negative becomes a positive.. But if I remember right if one of the negatives are in () then it makes the answer a negative.. So I think the answer is -25
