    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.

    How would I go about doing that then?

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