Theorem nnmtmip 11651
Description: "Minus times minus is plus, The reason for this we need not discuss." (W. H. Auden, as quoted in M. Guillen "Bridges to Infinity", p. 64, see also Metamath Book, section 1.1.1, p. 5) This statement, formalized to "The product of two negative integers is a positive integer", is proved by the following theorem, therefore it actually need not be discussed anymore. "The reason for this" is that (-𝐴 · -𝐵) = (𝐴 · 𝐵) for all complex numbers 𝐴 and 𝐵 because of mul2neg 11068, 𝐴 and 𝐵 are complex numbers because of nncn 11633, and (𝐴 · 𝐵) ∈ ℕ because of nnmulcl 11649. This also holds for positive reals, see rpmtmip 12401. Note that the opposites -𝐴 and -𝐵 of the positive integers 𝐴 and 𝐵 are negative integers. (Contributed by AV, 23-Dec-2022.)
