# If x = 4 and y = 2, what is the value of the following expression: 3xy - 12y + 5x

20

Explanation

To find the value of this expression, substitute the given values for x and y into the expression: 3(4)(2) - 12(2) + 5(4) Then, calculate the value of the expression: $$3 \times 8-12 \times 2+5 \times 4=24-24+20=20$$
