f(-4)=1 and g(x)=f(x/-3), what point can you determine graph

If f(-4)=1 and g(x)=f(x/-3), what point can you determine on the graph of g?

I don't remember all of the answer choices, however the correct answer was (12,1).

I got the answer correct from a random guess, but I'd like an explanation on how to solve an equation like this one?

The only point you know is (x, f(x)) = (-4, 1) so you have to work from that. So what x number gives you "-4" when you plug the number into "x/-3"?
