    is that x a variable factor? or just a multiplication symbol?

    thats the part that was confusing me put i think it is just a variable because there is a parenthesis meaning you already multiply.

    Well it doesn't make much sense to be a variable if it's expected to simplify to a single number. But if it's supposed to represent a line we'd have a y= that whole thing. Do you have any more context?

    \[72 - 3*(5-2)^2 = 72 - 3*3^2 = 72 - 9*3 = 72-27 = 45\]
