Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2"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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well these are my anserws g(f(x)) = x  5/8 g(f(x)) = x g(f(x)) = 8x + 35 g(f(x)) = x + 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is the problem f(x) = (x5)/8, or f(x) = x (5/8) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh! well then my first response was wrong, sorry; g(f(x)) = 8((x5)/8)+5 = ((8x40)/8)+5 = (x5)+5 = x
