Ok i know how to solve compositions when Im provided with x

Here I am dealing with f of g of h

f(x) = 2x-2

g(x) = x^2

h(x) = 9-x

so its f(g(h(x)

But how do i start without an x value?

Oh I see haha, guess that was a stupid mistake on my part. Guess I just had to leave X as X...

Ok how about

f(x) = √x

g(x) = 7√1-x

I tried √7-x, √x, √7x they were all wrong - Sep 13th 2011, 01:55 PMHallsofIvyRe: Question about Composition Functions

When I submitted both of those, it was marked as wrong...

even after simplfying it down to

√7-x and 7-√x - Sep 13th 2011, 02:15 PMPlatoRe: Question about Composition Functions

Nope, still didn't work... I am out of submissions now :(

Then that is a totally incompetent program or you do not know how to use it. I suspect that you are not using enough grouping symbols.

Look at my LaTeX code:

7\sqrt{1-7\sqrt{1-x}} this gives .

Note how carefully the various parts are grouped together using grouping symbols.

Does that program allow LaTeX coding?

If so the you can*copy and paste*from here.

In any case,**you need to contact the program administrator**to discuss these concerns. - Sep 13th 2011, 06:30 PMGaDoomZRe: Question about Composition Functions
You are correct plato, I was not inputting the second 7 properly. Thank you again
