There is a table of values for the function f. They read:

x=3, f(x)=4

x=4 f(x)=5

x=5 f(x)=6

x=6 f(x)=3

x=7 f(x)=5

x=8 f(x)=7

What is the value of 2f(5)-f(4)?

I did this wrong obviously, but what I did was figure out the function of five from the table (4), and multiplied that by 2 to get 8. I then got the function of 4, which was 3. I subtracted 3 from 8 to get 5, but that was not the correct answer, it was 7 according to my answer key. Where did I go wrong?
