    that means you substitute g(x) into EVERY x of f(x)...so what is your g(x)?

    nope.. Don't think so it just says "find (f o g)(x)?"

    well that's your answer then...if you want you can combine it to be safe..use x^2 as LCD \[\frac{1}{x} + \frac{2x}{x^2} = \frac{1 + 2x}{x^2}\]

    the first term is supposed to be \(\large \frac{1}{x^2}\)
