GIven that \(f(x) = \sqrt{9  x^2}\), and that \(g(x) = f(x  4)\), rewrite g(x) in terms of x. Please tell me how to do it and not just the answer.

\[g(x)=f(x4)\]Notice that\[f(x4)=\sqrt{9(x4)^2}\] Follow so far?

Oh...so you plugged in f(x  4) which is formed by plugging in (x  4) for x in f(x)?

Yup\[g(x)=f(x4)=\sqrt{9(x4^2)}\]

So it would be: \[g(x) = \sqrt{x^2 + 8x  7}~?\]

Yes you could simplify it further to what you did,. Just another example: If it was \[g(x)=f(x+5x^2)\] Then:\[g(x)=f(x+5x^2)=\sqrt{9(x+5x^2)^2}\]

Oh I get it...but for more practical uses, it would be just left as \[g(x) = \sqrt{9  (x  4)^2}~?\]

That's how I would leave it, unless your professor told you otherwise

Alright. THank you :) Just needed a quick refresher since I forgot how to do these momentarily!
