$-174$
When solving limits, the first step to attempt is direct substitution, meaning plugging in the value of what the limit is approaching into the equation. In this case, plugging in $3$ into the function $$(x^3+2)(x^2-5x)$$ will give $$(3^3+2)(3^2-5*3)$$ which further simplifies to $$29*-6=-174$$
