When you multiply two numbers with the SAME sign (both positive, or both negative,) the result is positive. When you multiply two numbers with DIFFERENT signs (one positive and one negative, the result is negative.)
Ok...you are multiplying 6 * (6)
These numbers have different signs. So, the result will be negative. To find the "number" part of the answer, multiply 6*6. Then since you know the result is negative, put a "" sign in front of the result.
6*(6) =  (6*6) 6*(6) = 36
