$$-4$$
First off, you do the equation in the absolute value. That way you get $|2|$ which equals $2$. If the inside of the absolute value was $-2$, that would also equal $2$. The absolute value makes what ever is inside of it positive. If there was an equation inside then you would solve it first and make its solution positive. $$|2| = 2$$ $$|-2| = 2$$ $$|7-10| = |-3| = 3$$ Then you apply whatever is on the outside of the absolute value. In this equation, it was subtracting 6. When you subtract 6 from 2 you get the final answer which is $-4$
