A=-2, b = -3
ab = 6
a+b = -5
b(a+b) = (-3) * (-5) = 15
a² + b² = 4 + 9 = 13

so (C)b(a+b) has highest value

A)  ab
(-2)(-3)
= 6

b)  (a+b)
((-2) + (-3))
= -5

c)   b(a+b)
-3((-2) + (-3))
-3(-5)
15

d)     a square + b square
(-2)  square + (-3) square
4 + 9
=13

therefore the highest value is b(a +b)
