Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

|x| is "absolute value" -- the distance of the number to 0.
(x) is just a grouping.

|-6| = 6
(-6) = -6

The next question is what is the value of -(-6).
(-6) equates to -6. So the negative value of that result is 6.

What is the value of -(-(-6)?
This is an error. The parenthesis don't match. There are two on the left and one on the right.

If it is actually written -(-(-6)) then, breaking it down by groupings,
(-6) = -6
-(-6) = 6
-(-(-6)) = -6

It helps to think of subtracting when using -. Since no number is subtracted, you are subtracting zero.
So (0 - 6) = -6
0 - (0 - 6) = 6
0 - (0 - (0 - 6) ) = -6

Try it on a calculator. Just do the innermost () equation first, save the result, and apply that result to the next operation.

On the calculator,
Innermost parens: 0 - 6 = -6
Middle parens: 0 - -6 = 6
0 - (middle parens, result above) 6 = -6
