    You might try posting what you think is correct.
    8 - 6[-2[-3 - 1] + 4[-2 - 3]]

    8 - 6[-2[-4] + 4[-5]]

    8 - 6[8 - 20]

    You take it from here.

    If you have troubles remembering what to do first, just remember to keep working from the INNER brackets to the OUTER brackets. until all the brackets are gone.
    Good luck!
