4y when y=-3 In other words the question is asking us to find the answer to 4(y) by substituting in y=-3. Therefore we substitute y=-3 into 4(y) giving us 4(-3). We know that if there are brackets we multiple so 4 x -3 which gives us -12 as a positive number multiplied by a negative number always gives a negative answer. =-12
