    f o g means f(g(x)) in other words it's saying f of some value x of g(x) .

    just put it g(x) as x into f(x)

    Basically you substitute in one function inside of the other.

    fog means f(g(x)) meaning you substitute g(x) wherever there is an x.

    similarly gof means g(f(x)) so substitute f(x) anywhere there is an x at.

    These guys have given you a good explanation as of how to get to the answer, but just in case you're still confused about what (f o g)(x) should look like, here you go. \[\large f(x)=\frac{1}{x}, \qquad g(x)=2x\]\[\large f(g(x))\quad = \quad f(2x) \quad = \quad \frac{1}{2x}\]
