I tried to factor 2x^2+4x+1 but ended up with something that didn't work. Am I missing something here? I'm so lost.

Thanks in advance,

let g(x) = ax^2 + bx + c

then

f(g(x)) = 2(ax^2 + bx + c) + 1

= 2ax^2 + 2bx + 2c+1

but this is equal to 2x^2 + 4x + 1

so 2a = 2 , a = 1

2b = 4, b = 2

2c+1 = 1, c = 0

so g(x) = x^2 + 2x
