It is hard to interpret what you formula is.

-2(-6 + 4 x 3-3)

Use "*" to indicate multiplication rather than "x", because x is typically used as
an unknown in algebra.

Is it:

-2(-6 + 4) * (3-3)? If so, the answer will be zero, since 3-3=0, and anything multiplied by zero = zero.

-2(-6 + [4 * 3]-3) = -2(-6+12-3) = -2*3 = -6

You need to clarify the operations in your formula.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
