    Natural domain of \[f(x)=\frac{ 1 }{ x-3 }\] g(x)=5x \[(Fog)(x)\] It is x\[x \in[-1,infinite)\] ?

    \[f(x)=\sqrt{x+1}\] g(x)=1-4x

    yes, f(g(x)) is correct then

    now quantity under square root cannot be negative

    So the domain is x<= 1/2 for the square root, and I take the intersection

    So I need to take the domain of FoG with \[\left\{ x \in Dg|g(x)\in Df \right\}\]

    And intersect that with the domain of the last result?

    i am not sure about what that notation says, but yes, you take the intersection domains of both the funtion with composite function to get the final domain
