Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\rm (f  g)(x) = (2x  2)(x + 4)\]\[\rm (f + g)(x) = (2x + 2) + (x + 4)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, then it gets a little difficult... you have to plug g(x) into f(x).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example, if you got \(\rm f(x) = x^2\) and \(\rm g(x) = x+1\), then\[\rm f(g(x)) = f(x + 1) = (x + 1)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for f(g(x)) just replace all the x in 2x2 with (x+4) and for g(f(x)) just replace all the x in x+4 with (2x2)
