(-3,40) Answer by solver91311(16885)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with any one of the given ordered pairs.

It might also be helpful to read as "the value of the function at " and to look at ordered pairs not as but as John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
