How do you evaluate $3{x}^{2}-2x+1$ given x=-2, y=-3, z=5?

If we want to evaluate an expression depending on some variables, we need to fix a particular value for those variables. This is what happens when you write "given

x=-2, y=-3, z=5".

Nevertheless, your expression $3{x}^{2}-2x+1$ only depends on x, so fixing a value for y and z seems quite pointless.

I hope this example can clarify: suppose you are in front of a robot that reads your age and determines whether you can play a video game or not. Suppose the video game is only for people aged 14 or more.

So, if you write "10" on the robot keypad, it will answer "you can't play!". Same if you type 13, but if you type 16 you're good to go.

Now, what happens if you type something like "I'm 19 and my name is Paul?" Well, you're surely good for the game, but what was the point in saying your name as well?

The same goes here: since your expression (assuming you wrote it correctly) only depends on x, the values of y and z are completely out of context.

Anyway, we can still evaluate the expression given x=-2 which means that we must substitute every occurrence of x with -2, so the expression becomes

$3(-2{)}^{2}-2\ast (-2)+1=3\ast 4+4+1=12+4+1=17$

x=-2, y=-3, z=5".

What is the range of the function $y={x}^{2}$?

The domain and range of $y=\mathrm{sin}x$ is

A)$R,[0,\mathrm{\infty}]$

B)$R,[-1,1]$

C)$R,[-\mathrm{\infty},\mathrm{\infty}]$

D)$R,[1,\mathrm{\infty}]$Mean of the squares of the deviations from mean is called the:

Variance

Standard deviation

Quartile deviation

A local newspaper in a large city wants to assess support for the construction of a highway bypass around the central business district to reduce downtown traffic. They survey a random sample of 1152 residents and find that 543 of them support the bypass. Construct and interpret a 95% confidence interval to estimate the proportion of residents who support construction of the bypass.
