$-8$
We start with the given expression: $(-2)(-2)(-2)$ We multiply from left to right: The product or quotient of two numbers with the same sign is positive. Since -2 and -2 are both negative, their product is positive. $(4)(-2)$ The product or quotient of two numbers with different signs is negative. Since 4 and -2 have different signs, their product is negative: $-8$
