Consider the following method:

        public void mystery(int n) {
            System.out.print("+");
            if (n >= 10) {
                mystery(n / 10);
            }

            if (n % 2 == 0) {
                System.out.print("-");
            } else {
                System.out.print("*");
            }
        }

For each call below, indicate what output is produced:

mystery(5);
mystery(15);
mystery(304);
mystery(9247);
mystery(43269);
