**Michael**, Sunday, November 11, 2007 at 7:41pmAll you have to do is plug x into the polynomial. For x=-3, you would have -(-3)^2-5(-3)-6. Simply that to get your solution (which should be just a number). Then, plug in -2 for the second part, simplify, and you're done.

-(-3^2)-5(-3)-6=

-9+15-6=18 (18 is the answer?)

**Reiny**, Sunday, November 11, 2007 at 10:44pm<< -9+15-6=18 >> ??

how did you get 18 for that?

-9+15-6

15-9-6

= 15-15

= 0
