the equation is
the composite I'm supposed to solve is
so I plug 3 into the function and get
then plug that back in and get
I think I'm doing the math right, but that's not typically the kind of answer you'll find when solving problem for class, so I just wanted some verification I hadn't gone off kilter somewhere.
*edited* made a mistake, recalculated, adjusted the above to reflect what I think is correct math
