Since `-6` does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the equation by adding `6` to both sides.

`g=6+2 `

Add `2` to `6` to get `8` .

Therefore, `g = 8`

Find the value of g. Use the golden rule of algebra: What is done to one side must be done to the other side.

Add 6 to both sides.

`g-6+6=2+6`

`g=8`

**Thus the value of g is equal to 8.**
