    (f o f)(-2) is basically saying f( f(-2) ), in other words, in 3x-4, replace x with ( 3x - 4 ) so you get f o f(-2) = 3( 3(-2) - 4 ) - 4 then simplify.

    (h o f)(x) = h(f(x)) so (h o f)o g = h(f(x)) o g = h( f ( g(x) ) ) f(g(x)) = 2(x^2+2) so h ( f ( g ( x ) ) ) = -4(2(x^2+2) )+3 Is this clear enough?

    h o f is h(f(x)) and then there's o g so wouldnt it be h(f(x)(g(x))

    Well, h o f o g = h( f( g(x) ) ) Basically (h o f) o g is same since h and f go first anyway.
