This is the second part (questions 11-20) of the solutions of the Grade 8 MTAP 2015 Elimination Questions. You can read the solutions for questions 1-10 here. If you found any errors in the solution, please comment in the box below.

11.) If x = 4 and y = -3, what is x^2y + xy^2?

Solution

x^2y + xy^2 = (4^2) (-3) + (4) (-3)^2 = (16) (-3) + 4(9)
= (-48) + 36 = -12

Answer: -12
