I am given the equation of a curve: y=x^3 - 5x - (2/x) where x is not equal to 0.

I am told that the points A and B which are (1,-2) and (-1,2) lie on it.

However, when one substitutes 1 and -1 into the equation one gets: -6 and 6 respectively.

I am pretty sure i am not going mad and this is a misprint (it is supposed to be a past exam question from what i gather.)

Am i right?

Thanks
