first find f(2) - plug in 2 for x into the x^2+1
then find g(1) - plug in 1 for x into the 3x+1
tell me what you get for f(2) and g(1) (respectively) please...

So f(2) would plug in and make it 2^2 +1 = 5 and g(1) would plug in to make it 3(1) + 1 = 4, but how would the power at the end work?
[ f(2)-g(1) ] ^2 becomes [5 - 4]^2
and that is equal t☼ ?
25 - 16 = 9
Thanks a thousand!
you are first subtracting f(2)-g(1) (that is subtract 5-4)
AND only then take the second power
(A-B)^2 is not same as A^2-B^2
So then you would have 1^2?
and that is same as ?
Okay. Thanks for catching me there.
sure, not a problem!
to do the arithmetic correctly, remember *order of operations*
people learn various mnemonics PEDMAS for example, which means you do the first on the list before moving on to the next:
parens, exponents, divide/multiply, add/subtract
thus with (5-4)^2 you do the stuff inside the parens before doing the exponents
now you can do the exponent: 1*1 = 1
