3(-5)squared -2/-5(2)/2 squared

I don't get the second part but...

any number squared is positive so

3(-5) squared is 3x25 if only (-5) is squared. If the whole thing is squared then multiply first, (3x-5) then squared the answer.

Is the second part...-2/-5? then is the same as 2/5. Remember to do step by step and be careful with the order of operations. If it is the first part - the second part...do then separate first
