i.e. = id est
e.g. = exempli gratia

Unless you are writing for an academic audience , "in other words" and "for example" are arguably better.

I.E. - What Does i.e. Mean?

"I.e." is used in place of "in other words," or "it/that is." It specifies or makes more clear.
E.G. - What Does e.g. Mean?

"E.g." is used in expressions similar to "including," when you are not intending to list everything that is being discussed.
