Let's break down the given expression step by step:

(-1 + 5) - (-1 - 5)

First, we perform the operations within the parentheses:

(-1 + 5) is equal to 4.

(-1 - 5) is equal to -6.

So the expression becomes:

4 - (-6)

Now, when we subtract a negative number, it is equivalent to adding the positive value. So, -(-6) becomes +6.

Therefore, the expression simplifies to:

4 + 6

Adding 4 and 6 gives us the final result:

4 + 6 = 10

Hence, (-1 + 5) - (-1 - 5) is equal to 10.

(-1 + 5) - (-1 - 5)

Therefore, the expression simplifies to:

Adding 4 and 6 gives us the final result:

4 + 6 = 10

Hence, (-1 + 5) - (-1 - 5) is equal to 10.
