# How do you evaluate (- 6- - 6) ^ { 3} + 4?

Oct 17, 2017

$4$

#### Explanation:

Focus on the parenthesis first. We have

$- 6 - - 6$ which is simplified to $- 6 + 6$ which is just $0$

So our expression is now

${\left(0\right)}^{3} + 4$

We now evaluate

${0}^{3} + 4$

$= 0 + 4$

$= 4$

The answer is $4$.

#### Explanation:

Begin by simplifying within the parentheses.

${\left(- 6 - \left(- 6\right)\right)}^{3} + 4 = {0}^{3} + 4$ because $- 6 - \left(- 6\right) = - 6 + 6 = 0$

${0}^{3} = 0$, so ${0}^{3} + 4 = 4$

The answer is $4$.
