If you didn't know, the absolute value is how far away a number is from 0 (btw, simplified definition). 

 

Here's how you would solve it:

 

First, plug in the values of n and p into the equation.

 

-3 * | 6*4 - 3*12 |

 

Second, subtract the numbers inside the | |

 

-3 * | 24 - 36 |   =  -3 * | -12 |

 

Third, take the absolute value of the number inside the | |, which will end up being 12.

 

Finally, multiply the final two numbers.

 

-3 * 12 = -36

 

Hope this helps!
