Find the domain of the composite function f∘g. f(x)=x^2+2; g(x)=√x−1
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.
\[f(g(x))=(\sqrt{x-1})^{2}+2=(x-1)+2=x+1\]
oh great... this makes sense now. so what is the domain? hope I am asking the right question
x can be anything, so the domain is the set of all real numbers.
Thank you. you are a star!
