1. ## composition of functions

Hi everyone,

It seems that these composition of functions has given me some problems. I am stuck on one problem set in particular, maybe someone here could help me. The set is as follows:

Use the given functions to answer the following questions. (Enter NONE in any unused answer blanks.)

(a) Evaluate (fog)(x).
(b) Evaluate (gof)(x).
c) Evaluate (fof)(x).
(d) Evaluate (gog)(x).

Thanks in advance for any help.

2. It will be far better if you five f and g without which your question is like a car flying in the ocean..............if its same

Enter None before every blank

3. ## sorry

ya i forgot the most important part of the problem set...the acutal functions. Here they are:

I'm sure this will be more helpful.

Thanks

4. , $= x^{1/3}$

$gof(x) =g(f(x)) = (f(x))^{1/3} = (x^3 +8)^{1/3}$

$fog(x) = f(g(x)) = (x^{1/3})^3 + 8 = x+8$

$
gog(x) = g(g(x)) =g(x)^{1/3} = (x^{1/3})^{1/3}
$

$
fof(x)= f ( f(x) ) = f(x)^3 + 8 = (x^3+ 8)^3 + 8
$

5. ## Thanks!

Thank you so much. I was close but just a little off. I didn't think to convert the roots to exponents. That would have made it so much easier.
Thanks again.
