Hint: This question involves the arithmetic operations of addition/ subtraction/ multiplication/ division. We need to know how to separate the $x$term from constant terms. We would find the value of$x$from the given equation. Also, we need to know the arithmetic operations involved with different sign terms.

The given equation in the question is shown below,
$9 - 2x = 35 \to \left( 1 \right)$
To solve the given equation we would separate the$x$term to one side of the equation and constant terms to another side of the equation. For that we move$- 2x$from the left-hand side to the right-hand side of the equation so, it will convert into$2x$ as shown below,
$9 = 35 + 2x \to \left( 2 \right)$
Next, we move the term$35$ from the right-hand side to the left-hand side of the above equation. So, we get
$9 - 35 = 2x$
By solving the above equation we get,
$- 26 = 2x$
Next, we move the term$2$from the right-hand side to the left-hand side of the above equation, we get
$\dfrac{{ - 26}}{2} = x \\ - 13 = x \\$
$x = - 13$
i) $\left( - \right) \times \left( - \right) = \left( + \right)$
ii) $\left( + \right) \times \left( + \right) = \left( + \right)$
iii) $\left( + \right) \times \left( - \right) = \left( - \right)$
