What will happen if you try to compile and execute the main method?

public class MyClass {

	int n = 9;
	int m = 5;
	boolean bool;

	int methodA(int x, int y){
		if(x == n) {
			System.out.print("-x" + (x + m));
			if(n > y) {
				System.out.print("-x" + (x - m));
				if(y < m) {
					bool = false;
					System.out.print("-x" + (y - m));
					return n;
				}else {
					bool = true;
					System.out.print("-x" + m);
		if(y > m) {
			System.out.print("-x" + (n - y));
			return n - m;
		}else {
			bool = false;
			return y + n;
	void methodB(){
		if( ! bool) {
			System.out.print("-x" + n);
		}else {
			System.out.print("-x" + m);
	public static void main(String[] args){
		MyClass mc = new MyClass();
		System.out.print("-x" + mc.methodA(9,7));
