Composition of Functions Def. Given two functions f and g , the composi- tion of function f with function g is de±ned by ( f ± g )( x ) = The domain of ( f ± g ) is the set of x in the domain of g such that g ( x ) is in the domain of f . g f ex. Let f = x 2 and g = x ² 3. Find the functions f ± g and g ± f .
