    if f(x) = X squared does it follow that f(a+1) = (a+1) squared

    replace x with (a+1).

    How do you evaluate the expresssion f(g(4)) when f(x)= 3x and g(x)= x-2

    f(g(4))=3(4-2)=6

    So let me explain that to you We have to find f(g(4) So we have to find g(4) first g(x)=x-2 then g(4)=

    note: if f(x)=3x, g(x)=x-2, then f(g(x))=3(g(x))=3(x-2)

    f(g(x)) :substitute g(x) in x of f(x).

    simply sub anything inside x as long it's in the domain.

    So what did you get ? g(4)=

    4-2=g(x)

    So under the same values of f(x) and g(x), g(f(4)) is equal to g(3(x)) which is equal to x-2(3x)?
