    Answer:

    -6 – (-8) = 2.

    Your number line might have a bubble at 2. Or it may show movement 8 units to the right of -6. Whatever it is, you should end up at the value of 2.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We don’t see a number line, but I can still show how to solve.

    -6 – (-8) is the same as doing negative six plus negative one times negative 8. Or in number terms it would look like:

    -6 + (- 1(- 8))

    In the order of operations — PEMDAS — we do parenthesis first.

    – 1( – 8) = 8, so we simplify by plugging this value back into the equation:

    -6 + 8

    -6 + 8 is the same as 8 – 6.

    8 – 6 = 2

    Your answer is 2.
