# Math Help - composition of 3 functions

1. ## composition of 3 functions

Express the function in the form f g h. (Use only elementary functions, but not the identity function, g(x) = x.)

f(x) =
g(x) =
h(x) =

im sooo lost

$f(x)=\sqrt[7]{x}$
$g(x)=2+x$
$h(x)=|x|$

$f\circ g\circ h$ means $f(g(h(x)))$.

So $f(g(h(x)))= f(g(|x|))=f(2+|x|)=\sqrt[7]{2+|x|}$.

oh now it makes sense. thank you very much
