For each problem, construct two composite functions, . Evaluate each composite function for x=2.


f(x)=x^2: g(x)=x-1/x

asked by Ricki
  1. f(g) = g^2 = ((x-1)/x)^2
    f(g(2)) = (1/2)^2 = 1/4

    similarly for g(f)

    In which step is the error? Step 1: Let x = 1 and y = 1. Step 2: By substitution xy = y^2. Step 3: Multiplying both sides by -1, -xy= -y^2. Step 4: Adding x^2 to both sides, x^2-xy=x^2-y^2. Step 5: Factoring, x(x-y)=(x+y)(x-y).
