    independent variable is x. So you have to plug in 2 for x, and find the y. then your pair is going to be (2, "this result for y")

    But which (2, "insert y") is it? :(

    your place where you wrote "insert y" you should put the result for y, that you get after plugging 2 instead of x.

    y and f(x) is the same exact thing

    wait, your f(x)=-6x³-4x² should say? right? (you left after 6 out)

    f(2)=-6(2)³-4(2)² = ?

    or is your f(x) the way it is now?
