Evaluate each expression for the given value(s) of the variable(s).

2x^2 - 3xy + 4y^2 for x=2, y=-1

My Answer:
(2(2^2)) - (3*2*-1) + (4(-1^2)) = 10

Text Book Answer: 18

Please help. Am I doing something wrong? I redid the expression 3 times and still got 10. But why textbook say it's 18?

Thank you.
