Explanation

The problem introduces two functions as well as the fact that g(m) = 29. First, solve for m:

\(g(m) = m^2 - 7 = 29\)

\(m^2 = 36\)
\(m = 6\) or \(-6\)

The question asks for h(m):

\(h(6) = |3 \times 6| + 2 = |18| + 2 = 18 + 2 = 20\)
\(h(-6) = |3 \times -6| + 2 = |-18| + 2 = 18 + 2 = 20\)

The answer is 20 for either value of m.

*x= (x/2)^2
That means 5/3= [(5/2)^2]/[(3/2)^2]=25/9
