Piecewise Functions

Piecewise Functions

Evaluate the piecewise function at the given value of the independent variable.

g(x)={x^2+4/x+2 if x not= -2
{x-3 if x is = -2
determine g(7)

(7)^2+4/7+2
= 53/9

I am not sue I am doing this right? Since g(7) I use x^2+4/x+2 because X is not = to -2?

You are correct if the function is written correct.
PLEASE use grouping symbols!
g(x)=[x2+4]/(x+2)
At first I thought x2 + (4/x) +2.
