Solve advanced and complicated equations using the power of graphs.

Problem

Let f, left parenthesis, x, right parenthesis, equals, start fraction, 2, start superscript, x, end superscript, divided by, x, minus, 1, end fraction and let g, left parenthesis, x, right parenthesis, equals, minus, 4, x, minus, 2.
The graph of y, equals, f, left parenthesis, x, right parenthesis is shown below.
Use the interactive graph to sketch a graph of y, equals, g, left parenthesis, x, right parenthesis.
Let x, start subscript, 1, end subscript and x, start subscript, 2, end subscript be solutions of start fraction, 2, start superscript, x, end superscript, divided by, x, minus, 1, end fraction, equals, minus, 4, x, minus, 2, where x, start subscript, 1, end subscript, is greater than, x, start subscript, 2, end subscript.
Estimate the value of x, start subscript, 1, end subscript.
Answers within units of the solution will be accepted.
