Given that: 4(2g + 104) - 96 = 504 + 6(g - 14), solve for g.

i'm confused on how to set this problem up - if anyone could help that would be great. thank you.

  1. expand first
    4(2g + 104) - 96 = 504 + 6(g - 14)
    8g + 416 - 96 = 504 + 6g - 84
    collect like terms and simplify
    8g + 320 = 6g + 420
    terms on one side, constants on the other side
    8g - 6g = 420 -320
    2g = 100
    g = 50

    Use linear approximation, i.e. the tangent line, to approximate (1/0.504) as follows: Find the equation of the tangent line to f(x)=1/x at a "nice" point near 0.504. Then use this to approximate (1/0.504).
