-6-5 would equal to -11 as you remembered.
If you subtract a number from a negative number, it just becomes even more negative. If you think of it as a number line from left to right, with negative numbers on the left, and positive on the right (with zero being teh middle), then if you subtract a number from another, then you move to the left a corresponding distance on that line. So -6 would be 6 spaces left of zero. If you subtract 5 from it, you move 5 more spaces to the left, and end up at -11.
think of negative numbers as being in a hole; the more dirt you subtract from the hole, the deeper you go.
good explanation, amistre!
