**Reiny**, Tuesday, June 9, 2009 at 7:10pmI assume you meant x^2 - y = 7

let's sub in the given point

Left Side = (-2)^2 - (-3)

= 4 + 3

= 7

Right Side = 7

Mmmhh, what do you think?

**Jen**, Tuesday, June 9, 2009 at 7:26pmI think that makes sense, although I used 2 computer based calculators that told me the solution was -1. So the annswer is 7 and solution is a true statement.

I think you probably told the calculator 4 - 3 = 1 but it is 4 -(-3) = 4+3 = 7
