Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, first everyone above is wrong. The answer is 2. If you substitute a for 5 it comes out 209. Just start substituting a with small numbers, like 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@GreenGermbubble If we sub in a=2 we get \[9(2)  4 + 3(2 11)\]\[ = 18  4 + 3 (9) \]\[=14 27 \]\[=13 \neq 23\] The correct answer is 5. :)
