## Problem

Harry and Terry are each told to calculate $8-(2+5)$. Harry gets the correct answer. Terry ignores the parentheses and calculates $8-2+5$. If Harry’s answer is $H$ and Terry’s answer is $T$, what is $H-T$?

$\textbf{(A) }-10\qquad\textbf{(B) }-6\qquad\textbf{(C) }0\qquad\textbf{(D) }6\qquad \textbf{(E) }10$

## Solution

We have $H=8-7=1$ and $T=8-2+5=11$. Clearly $1-11=-10$ , so our answer is $\boxed{\textbf{(A)}-11}$.
