You know that is a constant, so that one won't change. You can see that the first term involves a factor of that includes a square. You know that the minimum a squared value can be is 0 (A squared value is always going to be positive or 0). So the minimum value occurs when the first term is 0. So what value of x makes When x = -12.68, then
