"Solution:

Substitute the given value of n which is -5 to the given expression.

Use the PEMDAS method to solve this. The first thing you need to do is add -5 and 2.

The sum is -3. Refer to the rule of integers.

The second thing you need to do is multiply 4 and -3. Having a parenthesis between two numbers means that you should multiply.

The product is -12. Refer again to the rule of integers.

Evaluate now the remaining numbers. Subtract -12 and -3.

The difference is -15. Refer again to the rule of integers.

Answer: -15"
