    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

    It is given to you f(x)=log_10(x) and g(x)=5x-2

    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)

    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)=4x-2 and g(x)=9x then f(x)*g(x)=(4x-2)(9x) And if you want you could distribute and say f(x)*g(x)=(4x)(9x)-2(9x)=36x^2-18x

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

    I'm just replacing f(x) with what it equals and replace g(x) with what it equals

    the part that follows the equal sign is f(x)*g(x)

    just the expressions they are equal to instead of saying f(x)*g(x)
