You messed up.

\(\sf\Large 5a – 7b + b^2\) where \(\sf\Large a=-1 \\\sf\Large b=5\)
AbdullahM

So simply just plug in the numbers: \(\sf\Large 5(-1) -7(5)+(5)^2=?\)

Remember, it's multiplication we are doing. Not addition or subtraction.

Alright is this correct 5+( -1) -7(5) + (5)^2 -35 25 - 5 -35 25 -5+ -35 = 40 -40+ 25 = 15
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
almost correct, but \(\sf\Large -40+25 = \color{red}{-}15\) because \(\sf\Large -40+25 = 25-40\)

5+( -1) -7(5) + (5)^2 -35 25 - 5 -35 25 -5+ -35 = -40 25 + -40 = 15 How about now?
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
you have all the steps correct except the last one \(\sf\Large 25+ (-40) = -15\) \(\sf\Large -40 + 25 = -15\) It's \(\bf \color{red}{-}\)15 It's a negative 15...
