Question #b327c

1 Answer
Dec 20, 2016

Answer:

f(-2) = -3

Explanation:

Not sure if those last couple numbers are answer choices, but I'm going to infer that they might be.

Twenty four over the quantity of 3 x minus two in standard form is:

f(x) = #24/(3x-2)#

Since the number in the ( ) = x, plug in for x using f(-2)

#24/(3**(-2)-2)#

P E {M D} {A S} for where to solve first

Multiply the 3 and (-2):

#24/(-6-2)#

Add -6 and -2:

#24/-8#

Divide the rest:

f(-2) = -3
