Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. Slightly trickier, but the method is exactly the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If we want m(n(x)), then you must take n(x) first. That is given as \[n(x) = x  10\]Now, to find \(m(n(x))\), you must calculate \(m(x10)\). Using the function m(x), substitute \(x10\) for \(x\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In other words\[m \left( n \left( x \right) \right) = m \left( x10 \right) = 4\left( x10 \right)11\]What do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nothing, just leave it as x. Notice there are x's in all the answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No problem. So you need to figure out 4(x10)  11. Take it one bit at a time. Can you multiply 4(x10)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perfect. Now subtract 11 from that answer, i.e. 4x  40  11.
