    First you need to look at x+y and replace the x with an 8 and y with a -15 and add them together 8+-15. What would your answer be?

    ok fine 8+-15=-7 so your answer would be B. just remember when it comes to evaluating variables just replace that variable with the number it gives you. ex. w+y when w=2 and y=4 so you just add 2 and 4 then BOOM your answer would be 6
