$16$
We start with the given expression: $-3q+7$ We plug in values for $q$: $-3(-3)+7$ The order of operations states that first we perform operations inside grouping symbols, such as parentheses, brackets, and fraction bars. Then, we simplify powers. Then, we multiply and divide from left to right. We follow the order of operations to simplify: First, we multiply. The product or quotient of two numbers with the same sign is positive: $9+7$ Then, we add: $16$
