f(x) =\(x^2+5x+3\)

f(-4) = \((-4)^2+5*(-4) +3\) = 16 - 20 + 3 = -1

\(f(x)=x^2+5x+3\)

\(f(-4) = (-4)^2 + 5(-4) + 3\)

\(f(-4) = 16 -20 + 3 => -1\)

Answer (C)...

Since we have been asked to find the value of f(-4)
Here x=-4, for the expression f(x) = \(x^2+5x+3\)

Plugging values of x, we get
\(x^2+5x+3 = (-4)^2 +5(-4) + 3 = 16 - 20 + 3 = -1\)(Option C)
