Answer:

The product would be a negative number value.

Explanation:

A good way to think about exergonic reactions (spontaneous reactions) is to relate it to energy leaving the process as the reaction occurs. The product will have less "free energy" than the reactants. Free energy is the energy that is available after the reaction. Overall, energy is lost. There is no addition of energy.
