# How do you find g(-1) given g(x)=-5x+2?

Mar 12, 2018

$g \left(- 1\right) = 7$

#### Explanation:

Simply substitute the value of $- 1$ given. In other words, $g \left(- 1\right)$ is the function of $g \left(x\right)$, however in this case, $x$ is $- 1$

$g \left(- 1\right) = - 5 \left(- 1\right) + 2$

Distribute $5$ through the parenthesis

$g \left(- 1\right) = 5 + 2$

Simplify

$g \left(- 1\right) = 7$
