    The domain is the set of all reals, since f(g(x))=x+1.

    why is f(g(x)) = x+1 since the equation states f(g(x)) equals the square root of x-1

    You plug in the square root of x-1 for x.

    \[f(g(x))=(\sqrt{x-1})^{2}+2=(x-1)+2=x+1\]

    x can be anything, so the domain is the set of all real numbers.
