# How do you evaluate the function g(x)=5000(2^x) at the value of x=-1.5?

Feb 13, 2018

$g \left(x\right) \approx 1767.77$

#### Explanation:

You just plug in $x = - 1.5$ into the function.

$g \left(x\right) = 5000 \left({2}^{-} 1.5\right)$

$g \left(x\right) \approx 5000 \left(0.35355\right)$

$g \left(x\right) \approx 1767.77$

By the way, the $\approx$ sign just means that it's around that value (not exact).

Hope this helps!
