To recap, 3 + 6 + (-5) + 1 + (-1) + 1 + (-4) + (-1) = ...

 

The answer is 0

 

Let's go step by step:

1) What I would normally do is separating the negative and positive numbers, for convenience:

     3 + 6 + 1 + 1 + (-5) + (-4) + (-1) + (-1)

 

2) Then, just get the sum of each group:

     11 + (-11)

 

3) Now add them up and you get the answer:

     0
