i might be wrong since it been a long time but is it ( -4) you take the (-5) and - (-3) so that is = (-8) the add + 4 it will be = (-4) or you can also see it as (-5) -(-3) = (-2) +4 = 2 sorry is i wasnt much help good luck

the parentheses just help the problem look cleaner when using negatives. the answer is 6. because 4 +(-3) = 1 then 1-(-5) is 6 *remember double negative means plus plus negative means minus

Just go from left to right. 4 plus negative 3 equals 1. Now you have 1-(-5). When you subtract from a negative number, you get a positive answer. 1 minus negative 5 is 6. 6 is your answer.
