    6-12 is -6. the outside "brackets" change it to a positive. and then the outside - changes it back

    6-12 = -6, that - on the outside means nothing in this case, so its -6

    Are you familiar with the definition of "absolute value" and the "opposite of a number?" @InsanelyChaotic

    fyi brandon, the | | means absolute value. They are not parentheses or brackets.
