**bobpursley**, Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 2:54pmwell, 3*2= 15+6-24=-3 check that

then -3*4 must be =-15+12+48=45 check that.

**Marth**, Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 2:57pmEverywhere you see the * symbol, use the function 5x + 3y - 4xy, where x and y are the numbers to either side of the * symbol.

Order of operations still applies: start within the parentheses first.

3*2 = 5(3) + 3(2) - 4(3)(2)

3*2 = 15 + 6 - 24

3*2 = -3

Now you have (-3)*4

-3*4 = 5(-3) + 3(4) - 4(-3)(4)

-3*4 = -15 + 12 + 48

-3*4 = 45

So the answer is 45.
