See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Step 1) Subtract $\textcolor{red}{0.45}$ to each side of the equation to isolate the $g$ term while keeping the equation balanced:

$2.5 g + 0.45 - \textcolor{red}{0.45} = 0.95 - \textcolor{red}{0.45}$

$2.5 g + 0 = 0.5$

$2.5 g = 0.5$

Step 2) Divide each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{2.5}$ to solve for $g$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\frac{2.5 g}{\textcolor{red}{2.5}} = \frac{0.5}{\textcolor{red}{2.5}}$

$\frac{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{2.5}}} g}{\cancel{\textcolor{red}{2.5}}} = 0.2$

$g = 0.2$
