What do I do here? A table of values for f,g,f', and g' is given below. x f(x) g(x) f ' (x) g' (x) 1 1 3 3 1 2 2 3 2 1 3 2 1 2 3 A. If h(x)=f(g(x)), h'(3)= B. If h(x)=g(f(x)), then h'(2)=

    can you differentiate h(x) = f(g(x)) using chain rule ? to find h'(x)

    I know the chain rule but I don't understand how I'm supposed to differentiate with no equation

    Let F be the composition of two differentiable functions f and g; F(x) = f(g(x)). Then F is differentiable and F'(x) = f '(g(x)) g '(x) That is textbook definition that I have on me

    you just differentiated f(g(x)) ! h' (x) = [f(g(x))]' = f '(g(x)) g '(x)

    So part a would be 9? since g'(3)=3 and f'(g(3) is 3 right?

    That answer will be 2 right? Since with the chain rule you will get g'(f(x)) f'(x)
