confrused with this one too let f(x)=x^2+6 and g (x) =4x-5 find (f ° g)(-7)

just plod along

first do g(-7)

then do f(whatever you got for g)

g(-7) = 4(-7) - 5 = -28 - 5 = -33

f(-33) = (-33)^2 + 6 = 1095 ???

Then there is a typo somewhere. There was no divide in the problem statement. Perhaps at x = -1/7 ??

f(x)=x^2+6 and g (x) =x +8/xfind (f ° g)(-7) yep there was sorry

are you absolutely sure g(x) is not (x+8)/x ??

if g(x) = (x+8)/x

then

g(-7) = -1/7

then

f(-1/7) = 1/49 + 6

= 1/49 + 294/49

= 295/49

BUT

if it is as you wrote it

f(x)=x^2+6 and g (x) =x +8/xfind (f ° g)(-7) yep there was sorry

then

g(-7) = -7 + 8/-7

= -49/7 - 8/7=

= -57/7

the f(-57/7) = 57^2/49 +294/49

=3249/49 + 294/49

= 3543/49

which is not even on the list
