You need to remember that you may find the displacement evaluating the definite integral of velocity function, such that:
`d(t) = int_(-2)^5 (-(t^2) + 6t - 8) dt`
You need to use the property of linearity of integral such that:
`d(t) = int_(-2)^5 (-(t^2)) dt + int_(-2)^5 6t dt - int_(-2)^5 8dt`
You need to use the fundamental theorem of calculus, such that:
`d(t) = -t^3/3|_(-2)^5 + 6t^2/2|_(-2)^5 - 8t|_(-2)^5`
`d(t) = -5^3/3 + (-2)^3/3 + 3*25 - 3*4 - 8*5 - 8*2`
`d(t) = -133/3 +...
