    I'm not sure, but I think its (x + 1)^2 + 3(x - 1) + 5

    f(x) = f[(x -1) + 1]

    lol look at what i wrote...f(x-1 + 1) = f(x + 0) = f(x) since f(x-1) = x^2 + 3x + 5 f(x - 1 + 1) = (x+1)^2 + 3(x+1) + 5 got the logic?

    1 and 1 will be cancelled then there will f(x) I didn't get.

    hmmm you get that f(x-1 + 1) = f(x) right?

    now let a = x-1 f(a) = a^2 + 3a + 5 agree?

    now like i said f(x) = f(x-1 + 1) = f(a+1) therefore f(a + 1) = (a+ 1)^2 + 3(a+1) + 5

    substituting will actually make it complicated..let me start again do you get that f[(x-1) + 1] = f(x)?
