If f(x)=sin(x) and g(x)=x^2-x+1, find the domain of f(g(x)) and g(f(x)).

I was able to determine that:

f(g(x))= sin(x^2-x+1) and
g(f(x))= sin(x)^2 -sin(x) +1

Here is what I am thinking:

the range of f(x) is (x e R) and the range of g(x) is {x e R). Therefore the domain of f(g(x)) and g(f(x)) is {x e R)

the range of f(x) is {-1=< y=< 1} and the range of g(x) is {y>= .75}. Therefore the range of g(x) and f(x) will be what satisfies both the functions, { .75=< y =< 1}

Is this correct? If not, how would I go about solving this problem, specifically the range? Thanks for your help.

  • Math -

    f(g(x))= sin(x^2-x+1) and
    g(f(x))= sin(x)^2 -sin(x) +1
    are correct.

    The range of f(x)=sin(x) is [-1,1].
    The range of g(x)=x²-x+1 is indeed ℝ.

    However, the domain of both functions is ℝ.

    So the domain of f(g(x)) ℝ and the range is still [-1,1].

    The domain of g(f(x)) is ℝ. However, since sin(x) is a periodic function, we just have to limit the search to [-2π,2π].
    Find the absolute minimum and absolute maximum on the interval [-2π,2π] and that would be the range (all possible values of the function).
