Expanding we have 6x^2 - 15x + 4x -10
6x^2 - 11x - 10

Taking coefficients, a = 6, k= -11, n = -10

Therefore a - n + k = 6 - (-10) - 11 = 16 - 11 = 5

Simplify LHS..
$$(3x+2)(2x-5) = 6x^2-11x-10 = ax^2-n+k$$...
equate the coefficients...
a=6 ; k = -11 and n = -10..
so $$a-n+k = 6-(-10)+(-11) = 6+10-11 = 5$$
A
