Given f, g, find 3(f+g)(2), (g*f)(-2), g(f(x)), (f*g)(x),

1) Given f(x) = 2(squareroot of) x+1 and g(x) = (squareroot of) 2x-1 simplify 3(f+g)(2)

2) Given f(x) = 1-x^2 and g(x) = 2x + 1 evaluate (g . F) (-2)

3) Given g(x) = (squareroot of) 3 - 2x and f(x) - |x-2| A) find g(f(x)) B) State if the composite functions exists

4) Given f(x) = X /(2-x) and g (x) = 3/(x) A) Find (f . g) (x) B) State any restrictrions

5) G(x) = (-3/5)x + 2 and its inverse.

Do you mean...

1. Given and simplify

2. Given and evaluate

3. Given and find State if the composite functions exists

4. Given and Find State any restrictrions

5. Given and its inverse.

Yes sorry don't know how to do those symbols on here.

The composition of functions

can be written using

(f\circ g)(x)

To learn how to "operate" on functions, try here.

Then evaluate f(2) and g(2), add the results, and multiply by 3. :wink:

Assuming "(g.F)" means , then find g(-2) and f(-2), and multiply.

Multiply the two rational expressions. Check for the x-values which would cause division by zero.
