Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Plug in the g(x) equation where all the x's are in f(x). (2x^2 + 5)^2 + (2x^2 + 5) + 2 2x^4 + 5^2 + 2x^2 + 5 + 2 2x^4 + 25 +2x^2 + 7 2x^4 + 2x^2 + 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2f(x) = x2 + x + 2 f((g(x)) = (2x^2 + 5)^2 + 2x^2 + 5 + 2 = 4x^4 + 20x^2 + 25 + 2x^2 + 7 = 4x^4 + 22x^2 + 32
