Four of these are the familiar arithmetic operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and are very intuitive. The fifth type of combining functions is called composition of functions. In all cases, we’ll be interested in combining the functions and in finding the domain of the combined function. Suppose we have two functions, ) ( x f with domain A and ) ( x g with domain B . ( 29 ) ( ) ( ) ( x g x f x g f + = + with domain { } B A x x ∩ ∈ ( 29 ) ( ) ( ) ( x g x f x g f- =- with domain ∩ ∈ B A x x ( 29 ) ( ) ( ) ( x g x f x fg = with domain ∩ ∈ B A x x ) ( ) ( ) ( x g x f x g f = with domain ) ( , ≠ ∩ ∈ x g B A x x Example 1: Suppose 3 2 ) ( + = x x f and 1 4 ) (- = x x g ....
