**Hint:**Put $x = 1$ in \[f\left( x \right)\] to find the value of \[f\left( 1 \right)\] and put $x = 4$ in \[g\left( x \right)\] to find the value of \[g\left( 4 \right)\]. Then put the values of \[f\left( 1 \right)\] and \[g\left( 4 \right)\] in the expression \[2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right)\] to calculate its numerical value.

**Complete step by step answer:**

According to the question, we have to calculate the value of the expression \[2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right)\] and two functions are given to us.

The two functions are \[f\left( x \right) = 3x\] and $g(x) = - 4{x^2}$.

First we will calculate the value of \[f\left( 1 \right)\]. This can be determined by substituting $x = 1$ in \[f\left( x \right)\]. Doing so, this will give us:

$

\Rightarrow f\left( 1 \right) = 3\left( 1 \right) \\

\Rightarrow f\left( 1 \right) = 3{\text{ }}.....{\text{(1)}} \\

$

Next we will calculate the value of \[g\left( 4 \right)\]. In the similar way, this can be obtained by substituting $x = 4$ in \[g\left( 4 \right)\]. So this will give us:

$

\Rightarrow g\left( 4 \right) = - 4{\left( 4 \right)^2} \\

\Rightarrow g\left( 4 \right) = - 4 \times 16 \\

\Rightarrow g\left( 4 \right) = - 64{\text{ }}.....{\text{(2)}} \\

$

As we know, we have to determine the value of the expression \[2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right)\]. Thus putting values of \[f\left( 1 \right)\] and \[g\left( 4 \right)\] from the equations (1) and (2) in the expression, we’ll get:

\[

\Rightarrow 2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right) = 2 \times 3 + 3 \times \left( { - 64} \right) \\

\Rightarrow 2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right) = 6 - 192 \\

\Rightarrow 2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right) = - 186 \\

\]

Thus the value of the expression is -186 and this is the answer.

**Note:**If we have to find the values of the function at the same value of $x$ then we can combine both the functions to solve the expression. For example if we have to determine the value of the expression \[2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 1 \right)\] or the value of the expression \[2f\left( 4 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right)\], we can combine both the functions before putting the value of $x$ and it will become:

$

\Rightarrow 2f\left( x \right) + 3g\left( x \right) = 2\left( {3x} \right) + 3\left( { - 4{x^2}} \right) \\

\Rightarrow 2f\left( x \right) + 3g\left( x \right) = 6x - 12{x^2} \\

$

Now we can easily substitute the given value of $x$.

But in expression \[2f\left( 1 \right) + 3g\left( 4 \right)\], we have to determine the values of the functions at different values of $x$. That’s why we need to solve them separately and put those values in the expression as we did above in the solution.
