You were given a formula for the value of y when given a value of x. You were given a value for x, and asked for the corresponding value of y. You showed no work. The previous poster asked regarding the value you had obtained for y when you plugged the given value for x into the given formula for y.
Where, exactly, are you getting confused?

The variables are letters. Example: x and y

So is the answer: 162500
