y32y2 + 3y4 for y+5

The way you have typed the formula is confusing.
y^2 = y squared
You have both  and + signs before 3y. If you mean both plus and minus (±), can be done by pushing + and Shift and alt/option (at least on a Mac).
Please repost with revised formula and be more specific about your question. Thanks for asking.
