That is not what the ? is asking. The ? is asking about how to get the quotient function, not the composite as you solved for. Can you please show us how to get the quotient function solution? Thanks!

I need to find the Quotient Function of the following:

Given that f(x)=x^2-3 and g(x)=2x+1 find each of the following if it exists:

a. (f/g)(-root3)

b. (g/f)(-1/2)

I have never heard of the term "quotient function". From your description of what it is,I would suggest that you just compute f(x) and g(x) for the x value you are given, and take the ratio.

f(-1/2) = -3 1/4
g(-1/2) = 0
f/g (-1/2) = infinity

The "quotient function" is just f(x)/g(x), which you can write as a ratio of the two functions

What about A? Is there a solution for it?

Given that f(x)=x^2-3 and g(x)=2x+1 find each of the following if it exists:

a. (f/g)(-root3)

Did you combine the two problems? These are two separate functions.

a. (f/g)(-root3)

b. (g/f)(-1/2)

• Algebra -

f/g is (x^2 -3)/(2x+1)
Plug in -sqrt3 for x and compute

g/f is (2x+1)/(x^2 -3)
Plug in -1/2 for x and compute
