**MathMate**, Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 12:25pm(fog)(x) is a notation for substituting g(x) for x in the definition of f(x), in other words,

(fog)(x) = f(g(x))

Using f(x) = 6/x-1

and g(x) = 1+3/x

you would find

(fog)(x)

= f(g(x))

= 6/g(x) -1

= 6/(1+3/x) - 1

= (5x-3)/(x+3)

Can you show me how you got 2x?

**MathMate**, Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 2:28pmActually, it slipped my memory:

There is probably a mis-interpretation of the parentheses:

f(x) = 6/**(x-1)**and g(x) = 1+3/x

so

f º g (x)

=f(g(x))

=f(+3/x)

=6/(1+3/x-1)

=6/(3/x)

=2x

If this is the case, the answer is (A).
