# How do you simplify -4(3+3)?

Use PEMDAS to determine the order to do things and arrive at $- 24$

#### Explanation:

To solve this, we'll use PEMDAS. P stands for Parentheses (or brackets as I like to call them), so we'll work the addition inside them first, then do the multiplication.

Starting with the original:

$- 4 \left(3 + 3\right)$

and now working the addition within the brackets:

$- 4 \left(6\right)$

and now the multiplication:

$- 24$
