Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you must find g(2) by putting into the equation for g(2). Then you would take the step as to put what g(2) = into the f(x) equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By putting 2 into the equation for g, excuse me. Its a multistep equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you see g(2), that means solve g(x) where x = 2. \[\Large g(x) = x^{2}6x7\] \[\Large g(2) = 2^{2}(6*2)7= ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(g(2) ) means you find g(2) then substitute that to x in f(g(2) )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Note: Alternatively you could solve it all at once (but that may confusing right off the bat): \[\Large f(g(2)) = (x^{2}6x7)+8 = x^{2}6x+1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. Since g(2)=15, that means f(g(2)) = f(15). \[\Large f(x) = x+8\] \[\Large f(15) = 15+8 = ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let f(x) = x + 8 and g(x) = x2  6x  7. Find f(g(2)). first find g(2) then once you find that plug that to f(x)
