1. 2
2. 4
3. 72
4. 81
5. 90



ok, smallest number greater than -10 is -9....therefore it is -9 x -9= 81....so 81 it is greatest possible product of x and y...any number combination with number grater than -9 will give us in total smaller product than 81...for example -9 x -8 = 72 etc.

I have a problem with this answer. I thought x and y hare supposed to be two distinct negative integers. In this case, they should be -9 and -8. Please explain further.
