The graph of g(x) contains the point (4, -1), which means that g(4) = -1 .

----

a) consider the function g(2x) - 5

If you choose x = 2, then you get

g(2 * 2) - 5 = g(4) - 5 = -1 - 5 = -6

The point (2, -6) is on the graph of g(2x) - 5 .

----

b) considering the function 3g(x) + 1 , you can just use x = 4 to get

3g(4) + 1 = (3 * -1) + 1 = -3 + 1 = -2

The point (4, -2) is on the graph of 3g(x) + 1
