# Given: p(x) = -5absx + abs(-x + 1, h(x) = -x^2 - 3x, and g(x) = 5 - sqrt(x+30), how do you find p(-2)?

$p \left(- 2\right) = - 5 \left\mid - 2 \right\mid + \left\mid - \left(- 2\right) + 1 \right\mid$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$= - 10 + 3$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$= - 7$
The definitions for the functions $h \left(x\right)$ and $g \left(x\right)$ are extraneous to the question.
