Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay so here's how it goes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[x^2  13 \] \[(x+5)^2  13\] \[x^2 + 20x + 25  13\] what are the answer choices?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because of (x+5)(x+5) since it's squared

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Consider the functions f(x) = 3x − 2 and g(x) = x2 − 1. What is the value of (f − g)(−2)? Okay, x=(2) f(2) =3*(2)  2 f(2) = 6 2 f(2) = 8 g(2) = (2)^2 − 1 g(2) = 4 1 g(2) = 3 (fg) = 8  3 I think you can figure it out from there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(f − g)(−2) is f[g(−4)] though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[f(x)=x^213\] \[g(x)=x+5\] and you're trying to find f[g(4)], so since it shows that g(x) = 4, you plug it in, after you plug in the f(g) however, SOOOO \[(x5)13\] \[(4+5)  13\] got it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, I haven't done my welcome call yet and I've skipped all the DBA's and tests and I'm already 1/3 through lol! The only assignment I skipped though is 6.06 I think, since I need like 12 people for the scatter plot thing and I'm too shy and socially awkward to ask people if I can measure them lmao
