Given Information:

The numbers are (5)(9)(+2).

Formula used:

The steps for the multiplication of more than two signed numbers are shown as below:

Step 1: Multiply the absolute value of more than two numbers by placing a positive sign, just before the product, if total count of negative factors is even.

Step 2: Multiply the absolute value of more than two numbers by placing a negative sign, just before the product, if total count of negative factors is odd.
