    I'm a little lost, so pretty much just do this, -2*(-5) -7 and -4*(-5) + 3? Is that what your saying?

    good... now that you found g(-5)=23, that 23 goes into f. so you need to find f(23) = ???

    that is the definition of (f ° g)(-5) = f(g(-5))

    yes.... :) f(23) = -2*(23) - 7 = -46 -7 = -53
