For the functions f(x) = 5x − 3 and g(x) = x + 4, which composition produces the greatest output?
f(g(x)) produces the greatest output.
g(f(x)) produces the greatest output.<my ANSWER
Both compositions produce the same output.
Neither composition produces an output.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These are linear equations, remember y = mx + b g(f(x)) = (5x − 3) + 4 = 5x +1 f((g(x)) = 5(x + 4) − 3 = 5x + 17
