That symbol between f and g means to multiply.

Take the expression that f is equal to and multiply it to the expression g is equal to.

i.e. stick a times sign between them, or just write them next to each other

How do I find out what each expression stands for?

It is given to you f(x)=log_10(x) and g(x)=5x2

Yeah so how do I solve the expression?

There is really nothing to do here just replace f(x) with what it equals and replace g(x) with what it equals in the expression f(x)*g(x)

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Like if I said f(x)=5x and g(x)=sin(x) then f(x)*g(x)=5x*sin(x)=5xsin(x)

How about the example, if f(x)=2x and g(x)=e^x then f(x)*g(x)=2x*e^x=2xe^x

Ok now I'm understanding you more, but i'm getting confused after the = sign.

Or here is another example if f(x)=4x2 and g(x)=9x then f(x)*g(x)=(4x2)(9x) And if you want you could distribute and say f(x)*g(x)=(4x)(9x)2(9x)=36x^218x

All I'm doing is saying what f(x)*g(x) is given what f(x) equals and g(x) equals
 4 months ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
I'm just replacing f(x) with what it equals and replace g(x) with what it equals

see I donnt know how to get the equal part

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
You put an equal sign

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Or do you mean the part that follows the equal sign
 4 months ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
the part that follows the equal sign is f(x)*g(x)
 4 months ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
just the expressions they are equal to instead of saying f(x)*g(x)
 4 months ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Like if I said f(x)=3 and g(x)=2 what is f(x)*g(x)?
 4 months ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
yes or you could say 3*2 without simplifying right
 4 months ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
so what is complicated about what your problem is asking then?

woohooBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok.. I'll be right back.
