(a-y)+2y3,if a= 2 and y= -3

(2--3)2 + 2(-3)3
(5)2 + (-6)3
25 + -216
-191 either im wrong somewhere or my book doesnt have that answer my choices are -29,43,79,-53

I am assuming that by 2(-3)3 you mean
2(-3)3
you did not follow the order of operation which says exponents before multiplying

that part should then be
2(-27)

25 + (-54)
= -29

If 2^n>n^2 and n>5, then 2^n+1>(n+1)^2 Proof: Assuming that 2^n>n^2 then I can say that 2*2^2>2*n^2 = 2^n+1>2n^2 If I can show that 2n^2>(n+1)^2 then I will be done by transitivity. So 2n^2>(n+1)^2?
