Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!

The goal is to combine like terms. You want to put all the variables (the letters), and all the constants (the numbers without any letters) together.

4b-7-15b+3

Let's rearrange it

4b-15b-7+3

Since we put like terms together, you simply do the addition of the subtraction.

-11b-4

This is the final answer.
