# explain 6 less than -2 with words.

6 less than $-$2 means, $-2-6$
Here we multiply two signs i.e., $\left(-\right)×\left(-\right)=+$  it means we have to add these two numbers (6 + 2 = 8). Sign with greater number is minus, therefore proper result with sign is $-8.$

in this sum you need to use the concept of multiplying two signs
6 has the + sign and 2 has the - sign
therefore if we multiply + and - we will subtract the two numbers
so 6-2=4 and the sign will be + because we always use the sign of the greater number
