    I will work through it with you but first you must clarify if the question is \[6 \times (1-(-6) \times 8\] or\[6 \times (1-(-6)) +8\]

    I use the acrimony (I think thats what it is called) BEDMAS to remember my order of operations Brackets Exponents Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction I live in Canada and trying to remember as much as I can from previous schooling there should be no difference between the square brackets and the round brackets (parenthesis).

    yes you assume multiplication when a number is written outside of the brackets like that.
