    Just remember: (f-g)(5)=f(5)-g(5)

    Plug in 5 in both of the functions and subtract the outcomes.

    so, f(5) = 2(5-9) and g(5)=4 times 5?

    @Andrewisbadatmath: right, and if you've found f(5) and g(5), you calculate their difference: f(5) - g(5)

    f(5) = 2(5-9) = 2*(-4)=... g(5) = 4*5 = ... f(5) - g(5) = ... (not 12)

    You will get -8 - 20 = ...
