Composition of functions f g f g x g(x) f(g(x)) To find f g you should: take the formula for f(x), and replace every x by g(x) f(x)=cos(x) g(x)=3x 2 +1 f o g(x)=f(g(x))=cos(3x 2 +1)

f(x) = x 2 +1 g(x) = tan x f(g(x)) = (tan x ) 2 +1 g(f(x)) = tan(x 2 +1) g composed with f (evaluated at x) f composed with g (evaluated at x)

: Given F(x)= (2+1/x) 3 , we can write F=f o g with f(x)=(2+x) 3 g(x)=1/x Note that f is the outer function and g is the inner function . If you choose
