    post the question, but you might want to ask you teacher. Maybe it is a typo and they meant the number 2

    a@b =2a/b and a#b- 2a^2 +3b-5 find the value of 3@(2#4)

    well a is your 3 and b is your 2#3 they are using it as a place holder (for a lack of a better word) this means a=3

    ok Let me work this out for you. In SAT they sometimes use a heart or some type of symbol - means nothing just defines things

    ok here it goes a#b=\[-2a^2+3b-5\] 2#4 means a is 2 and b is 4 so sub 2#4=\[-2(2)^2+3(4)-5\]=-1

    a@b = (2a)/b 3@(2#4)=3@-1 so a is 3 and (2#4) is -1 3@-1=(2*3)/-1=-6
