Evaluate an array expression with numbers, + and –

Given an array arr[] of string type which consists of strings “+”, “-” and Numbers. Find the sum of the given array.
Examples :

Input : arr[] = {"3", "+", "4", "-", "7", "+", "13"}
Output : Value = 13
The value of expression 3+4-7+13 is 13.

Input : arr[] = { "2", "+", "1", "-8", "+", "13"}
Output : Value = 8

Approach :
1) First of all, initialize the sum i.e, sum = 0.
2) Start traversing the array.
3) As there is string of numbers at every even position of the array, so convert this string into integer and store in a variable value by using stoi function in C++.
4) As there is operator at every odd position, check if the operator is ‘+’ or ‘-‘. If it is ‘+’, then add the value to the sum, else subtract from the sum.
5) Finally, return the sum obtained.

Below is the implementation of the above approach :
