Answer:

#-4#

Explanation:

For this equation, we need to get rid of the parenthesis first. When we do this we get:
# -6 - 3 -7 -: 4 #

The #-3# and #-7# stayed the same because when you open the parenthesis:
- A negative and a negative becomes a positive
- A negative and a positive becomes a negative
- A positive and a positive becomes a positive

We simplify to get:
# -16 -: 4 #

Our final answer is:
#-4#
