A negative multiplied by a negative always makes a positive number- so negative four times negative six is simply four times six, which equals twenty-four!

In words, the same idea could be expressed as: "Six less than a number is negative fifteen".

2*(n-6) < -36n-6 < -18n < -12

It is the sign that is opposite, not the number But if the number magnitude is the same, it is correct to say that ,for example, negative 6 is the opposite of positive six. But negative 4 is not the opposite of negative 8, for example

Multiply top and bottom by any number except zero - the same number for both - and you get an equivalent fraction.

Since doing the subtraction is rather easy to do, am guessing you need help with the 'square' part of that. The square of a number is found by multiplying that number with itself. The square of negative six can be found by multiplying negative six with negative six. Negative six times negative six is positive thirty six. So, in other words, the square of negative six is positive thirty six. (It is a curious thing that the square of any real number is ALWAYS positive.) 33 minus the square of negative 6 is the same as 33 minus 36. You can do the subtraction!
