    it is \(g(x)=10x+6\) ?

    \[f(g(x))=f(-10x+6)=7(-10x+6)+4\] then some algebra to clean up the answer

    oh so basically we plug them in together equaling to each other?

    okay from the basic algebra how do we find f(g(x))?

    look at the steps i wrote first i wrote \(f(g(x))\) then i replaced \(g(x)\) by your \(g(x)\) namely \(-10x+7\)

    so I got this: -70X + 46 = -70X-40

    then evaluate the function \(f\) replacing \(x\) by \(-10x+7\)

    there is no equation to solve here

    the solution is \[f(g(x))=f(-10x+6)=7(-10x+6)+4=-70x+42+4=-70x+46\]
