Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1353198866293:dw Ok take a look at this a sec, see if it makes sense or not.. so hmmm to finish this off, we'll need to figure out what f(7) is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[f(7)=55\]\[\huge g(f(7))=\frac{ f(7)+8 }{ f(7) }=\frac{ 55+8 }{ 55 }\]
