ok, so lets take this one step at a time. First focus on the inside, you have 3(6). what does that equal?

no, that's not right. You're multiplying 3 and 6, but you should be subtracting them, I think that's where you mistake may be natalie :)

what is (3)  (6)? what happens when you subtract a negative number?

(3)  (6) is the same as (3) + (6) you can think of the two negatives cancelling out to form a positive

almost! just follow what @jim_thompson5910 said. Once you get the answer to taht, all you have to do is negate it (due to the negative on the outside) and you're good to go! :)

[3(6)] [3+6] [9] 9

so you basically evaluate 3(6) to get +9 then you change it to 9 since there's a negative out front
