If g(x)=2x+5(3x2), find: a. g(1) b. g(0) c. g(3) d. g(x) = 6, x= e. g(x)=2, x= Please help, I need his by tomorrow. Or at least please point me in the correct direction. Thanks!

a. If g(x) = 2x + 5(3x  2), g(1) = 2(1) + 5(3(1)  2) = 2 + 5(3  2) = 2 + 5(1) = 7. d. If g(x) = 6, 6 = 2x + 5(3x  2) = 2x + 15x  10 = 17x  10, x = (6 + 10)/17 = 16/17.

You find it out by filling in X's with the anser in parentheses by the F.

Thus: a) g(1) = 17(1)  10 = 7 b) g(0) = 17(0)  10 = 10 etc. d) 17x  10 = 6 17x = 16 x = 16/17

I should have looked at simplifying g(x), but it seemed simple enough at the time!

Yeah, just like they were saying, just plug in your values, where the x variables are present.
