Find the composition.

If f(x) = x^2 + 12 and g(x) = x^2 - 5, find (g*f)(x)

  • Math -

    f(x) = x^2 + 12 and g(x) = x^2 - 5, find (g*f)(x)

    g(f) = (x^2 + 12)^2 - 5
    = x^2 +24 x +144-5
    = x^2 + 24 x +139

  • Math -

    (g*f)(x) or (g○f)(x)
    =g(f(x))
    = g(x^2+12)
    = (x^2+12)^2 - 5
    = x^4 + 24x^2 + 139
