## anonymous one year ago HELP PLEASE? WILL MEDAL If g(x) = 2 (x-4), find the value of x if g(x) = 20 A) 32 B) 12 C) 14 D) 10 So how do I figure out what I plug in to get the answer?

1. Nnesha

replace g(x) with 20

Alright, that's what I thought, I just wanted to make sure. I'm not really all that confident in myself when it comes to math lol

3. Nnesha

$\huge\rm \color{Red}{g(x)}=2(x-4)$$\huge\rm \color{Red}{20}=2(x-4)$ now solve for x

x = 14

5. Nnesha

thats mean you're pretty good at math :=)

6. Nnesha

yes right you can check ur answer substitute x for 14 $20=2(\color{red}{14}-4)$ both sides are equal ? go.od to go!
