Since in this case \(x = -2\), then we can subsitute \(-2\) in for all the \(x\)‚Äč's. We can get \(4{(-2)}^{3} - 4{(-2)}^{2} + 10\), which equals \(-32 - 16 + 10\), which equals \(-38\).

I got f(-2)= -38 but I might have gotten it wrong so ask another person for the answer. Its always best to have more than one perspective anyway

I got that also, hopefully we are both correct rather than both incorrect... Haha.
