In 6th Grade, students learn about negative numbers and opposite numbers but some of them face difficulties while plotting the numbers like -(-3) on a number line. Teachers can assign “Interpret negative symbol as opposite practice problems” to the students to enhance their math skills and reinforce their understanding of negative numbers and opposite numbers.

After solving these practice problems, they will learn how to interpret -(-3). For example, if the given number is -(-3), it is interpreted as opposite of -3 and the opposite of -3 is 3.
