Answer -11

f(x) = 2x2 -8x -3

f'(x)=4x-8

f''(x)=4 , then it has minimal value at the point x=2

minimum value is 2⨉(2)2 -8⨉(2) -3= -11

Answer is -11

Substutue all the value of x from 1 to 5 

in case of 0 it is -3

in case of 1 you will get -9 

in case of 2 you will get -11

in case of 3 you will get -9 

incase of 4 you will get -3

incase of 5 you will get 7
