    Is this function even viable?

    Calculate h(5) when you know that h(x+2)=x^2+3x+1 is this even possible? It's in my text book.

    Thanks!

    h(5)=h(3+2)=3^2+3 \times 3 + 1

    Which option is stupid: Not posting the question or posting it? I vote for not posting.

    I suppose you are right, Dan. I did learn from it and that's all that matters.
