Getting your math problems solved is not the actual solution. Being a teacher and a mother, I would suggest you to learn the subject properly and do your homework by your own. You can ask your parents or teachers for help. Otherwise take help of a good tutoring site like

this is a simple multiplication problem. You can rewrite this as 4 times -7 or 4 * -7 or 4 x -7

since a positive times a negative equals a negative, 4 times -7 equals -28

The question is asking you to multiply positive four with negative seven. First, multiply the numbers 4*7= 28. Then, if the signs in the problem are the same(positive and positive, or negative and negative), the answer is a positive number. If the signs in the problem are different (one positive and one negative), then the answer is a negative number. So the numbers postive four and negative seven's signs are different, so the answer is -28
