    g(x) = x - 8 g(6) = 6 - 8 What is 6 - 8?

    solve for g(6) first g(x)=x-8 g(6)=6-8 =-2 f(x)=6x+12 f(gx)= 6(-2)+12 =-12+12 =0

    Once you find the value of g(6), use that value in function f(x).

    Great. You are correct. g(6) = -2 Now we take -2 and use it in function f f(x) = 6x + 12 f(-2) = 6(-2) + 12 Now evaluate the line above.
