# let f(x) = x2 − 8x + 5. find f(−1).

## Question:
Let f(x) = x^{2} − 8x + 5. Find f(−1).

We have the function f(x) = x^{2} − 8x + 5

## Answer: f(-1) = 14

We will substitute -1 for x in the function f(x) = x^{2} − 8x + 5

## Explanation:

f(x) = x^{2} − 8x + 5

f(-1) = (-1)^{2} − 8 (-1) + 5

= 1 + 8 + 5

= 14

### So, the value of f(-1) is 14
