# Thread: Finding values of x on a function graph

1. ## Finding values of x on a function graph

I got a graph with a function on it and I need to find values like

g(x) = -g(-x), g(x) = g(x+5), g(x+5)=g(x)+3

Our teacher told us to use butcher paper and trace the function...I forgot what else to do? Can anyone help?

I got some butcher paper and I don't understand how to find those values!!!

It might be easier for you to work out what the equation of g(x) is.

Then you can easily find what -g(-x) and g(x+5) are, and solve the equations using algebra.

3. How would I go about doing that then?

I'd rather keep it simple if you know how to use the butcher paper method....
