Is delta g considered a state function?

I know for sure that Gibbs free energy itself is a state function. I’m not too sure about the change in G though.

The çhange in G is not dependent on path taken so it would not be a state function.

If it's not dependent on the path taken, then it is a state function.

Gibbs free energy itself is a state function. Because it is a state function, we only ever need to consider the change in G from its initial state to its final state because state functions are independent of the path taken by the system.
