    Since u want to find F(x) at x=-6 , U will use the Function F(x)= x^2-1 because x is bigger or **Equal** -6 Plug -6 in the equation so it will be F(-6)=(-6)^2-1=.....

    i know. denominator should not be 0 |x|-1 should not be 0 for x=1, |1|-1=1-1=0 for x=-1, |-1|-1=1-1=0 so x|x≠-1, x≠1 got it ?
