# The function g(x) is defined as g(x) = 3(x+8). What is the value of g(0) and g(12)?

A function is a relationship between an input and output variable where the output depends upon the input value.

## Answer: For the function g(x) defined as shown g(x) = 3(x+8), the value of g (0) is 24 and the value of g (12) is 60.

Let's find the value of g (0) and g (12).

**Explanation:**

The relationship between an independent variable and a dependent variable is expressed with a function. The set of the independent variables is called domain whereas the set of the dependent variables is called range.

Given function: g (x) = 3 ( x + 8 )

To find the value of g (0), put x = 0

⇒ g(0) = 3 ( 0 + 8 ) = 3 ( 8 ) = 24

Thus, the value of g (0) is 24.

To find the value of g (12), put x = 12

⇒ g(12) = 3 ( 12 + 8 ) = 3 ( 20 ) = 60

Thus, the value of g (12) is 60.
