Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In statistics, f-values must always be positive.

Answer: -2.97

You can see from the equation below that F-value must be positive, due to both numbers being squared.

f=s1212

F-statistic is a way to determine if your test is significant.  

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

I thought it could be 32.44, could you explain why that is not the answer? thank you

I'm 100% positive that F-values cannot be negative.  I don't think there's much of a limit for how positive the value can be, but I'll look into it for you :)
