Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is an example of a composition of equations problem. In order to solve this, you must combine the two equations. You can do this by looking at the notation. For example, to find g(4), you would turn all x values into your equation into 4 Here, we are trying to find F of G of x. So in the problem, we take the f(x) equation and replace it with G. It should look like this: 3(x\(^{2}\)6)+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@adsfghgdfsf you still there? all you have to do here is either leave the equation in this form, or simplify it; there's no way you can solve for a numerical value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it will be 3x+1 over x^26

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, its just a combined fraction; the notation is telling you to replace the x variable of ft(x) with the g(x) equation. And if you wanted to simplify, you would only have to distribute, also known as multiplying **THERE ARE NO FRACTIONS INVOLVED IN THIS PROBLEM!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes there is because the answer choices are in fractions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0huh....are all the answers choices fractions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in that case, you are correct. I was thinking this was a composition TT_ TT since the problem notation explicitly states that f(x) is over g(x)
