# If g(x)=abs(x-4) what is the value of g (3)?

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

To find $g \left(3\right)$ substitute $\textcolor{red}{3}$ for each occurrence of $\textcolor{red}{x}$ in $g \left(x\right)$ and evaluate the function:

$g \left(\textcolor{red}{x}\right) = \left\mid \textcolor{red}{x} - 4 \right\mid$ becomes:

$g \left(\textcolor{red}{3}\right) = \left\mid \textcolor{red}{3} - 4 \right\mid$

$g \left(\textcolor{red}{3}\right) = \left\mid - 1 \right\mid$

$g \left(\textcolor{red}{3}\right) = 1$
