Can you use the numbers 1 - 9, along with any math symbols and operations, to arrive at the answer of 100 when the 6 and 9 have a negative sign in front of them? I'm not sure how my teacher wants this to be done

Here is one example on how to do that:

***Note: You can use any math symbol and operation, this also includes squaring or cubing numbers. Therefore:

8^2 + -6 * -6

We do the exponential first: 8^2 = 64

Then the multiplication: -6 * -6 = 36

Add the two results together: 64 + 36 = 100

(Remember that the order of operation is PEMDAS!!! Therefore giving the reason why I did this problem in the specific order that I did.)
