3x squared - 5x when x= -2 My Answer is 46. I got this by doing 3 times -2 and squaring that and then multiplying 5 times -2 and subtracting that ( negative 10 ) from 36. Is this correct?

**Kirk**, Wednesday, August 22, 2012 at 9:31pmIm sorry but you did it wrong. Remember your order of operations. First do whats in parenthasis, so nothing then exponents. catch me first off is you will get this when you substitute in. 3(-2)^2-5*-2. so you square your -2 which gives you -4 so now you got 3*-4-5*-2. so now we do our multiplication and divsion. -12+10 and we get -2

when x=-2 we get

3(-2)^2 - 5(-2)

= 3(4) + 10

= 12 + 10

= 22
