    to find g(-2), plug in -2 instead of x, into the function g(x).

    Same way, to find g(4), plug in 4 instead of x (into the same function).

    we need to find to find the value of g(-2) and g(4) first okay what we will do for it first plug -2 at the place of x in the given equation you will get g(-2) = -18 now plug or put 4 at the place of x , you will get g(4) = 30

    now compare it we get that the value of g(-2) is less than g(4) because g(-2) = -18 and g(4) =30 . I hope you get it if you have any other question regarding my explanation ask me freely. thank you
