For the functions f(x) = 2x + 2 and g(x) = 7x + 1, which composition produces the greatest output? Both compositions produce the same output. Neither composition produces an output. f(g(x)) produces the greatest output. g(f(x)) produces the greatest output.

    But I think its g(X)= 7x+1 cause you pick any number for X plug it in and do the math you'll get a higher number than you would if you were to plug in a number the the f(X)= 2x+2

    actually, I think you may be misunderstanding the problem

    The question is not asking to compare f(x) and g(x), it's asking to compare f(g(x)) and g(f(x))

    "composition" means to plug one function into the other function

    Hm, I don't think so f(g(x)) = 2(7x+1) + 2 = 14x + 2 + 2 = 14x + 4 g(f(x)) = 7(2x+2) + 1 = 14x + 14 + 1 = 14x + 15 g(f(x)) is bigger so I believe the answer is D
