## osanseviero 2 years ago The domain of a composition of two functions

1. osanseviero

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

2. hartnn

what did you get for f(g(x)) = .... ?

3. osanseviero

Let me do it, give me a sec

4. hartnn

5. osanseviero

$\sqrt{2-4x}$

6. osanseviero

ooops sorry, confused question, give me another sec

7. hartnn

am i reading the question correct ? f(x) =1/ (x-3) g(x) =5x ? i don't see ..... oh, okk

8. osanseviero

Sorry, the mistake was the question

9. osanseviero

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

10. hartnn

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

11. hartnn

now quantity under square root cannot be negative

12. osanseviero

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

13. osanseviero

[-1,1/2]

14. hartnn

yep, thats correct! good :)

15. osanseviero

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

16. osanseviero

And intersect that with the domain of the last result?

17. hartnn

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

18. osanseviero

Perfect, thanks
