Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your g(x)=2x²+1, correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, when you say `(f × g)` all that means is that you multiply whatever `f(x)` is equal to, TIMES whatever `g(x)` is equal to. In this case `f(x)=5x1` and `g(x)=2x²+1` So in this case, `(f×g)` means `(5x1)•(2x²+1)`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This will give you a new function (f×g)(x)= (whatever you got from this product of the 2 functions) But it is not done yet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then, after you get the correct product of the two functions you need to plug in 3 instead of x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's alright.... I would prefer you to show the work in here, so if anything, then I c an correct you. (But it is just a matter of preference , not requirement)
