# How do you evaluate the function with the given values of x:color(white)("dd") h(x)=23x-1 ;color(white)("d")x=1/3;color(white)("d") x=-1?

$\frac{20}{3} \text{ and } - 24$
$\text{to evaluate substitute the given values for x into } h \left(x\right)$
$h \left(\textcolor{red}{\frac{1}{3}}\right) = \left(23 \times \textcolor{red}{\frac{1}{3}}\right) - 1 = \frac{23}{3} - \frac{3}{3} = \frac{20}{3}$
$h \left(\textcolor{red}{- 1}\right) = \left(23 \times \textcolor{red}{- 1}\right) - 1 = - 23 - 1 = - 24$
