    "g(f(x))" says compose g(x) of f(x), which means (literally) plug f(x) into g(x) for x in the equation g(x)

    well these are my anserws g(f(x)) = x - 5/8 g(f(x)) = x g(f(x)) = 8x + 35 g(f(x)) = x + 10

    is the problem f(x) = (x-5)/8, or f(x) = x- (5/8) ?

    oh! well then my first response was wrong, sorry; g(f(x)) = 8((x-5)/8)+5 = ((8x-40)/8)+5 = (x-5)+5 = x
