Definition: Given two functions f and g, the composite function, denoted f o g (read as f
composed with g), is defined by: (f o g)(x) = f(g(x)). The domain of f o g is the set of all
numbers x in the domain of g such that g(x) is in the domain of f.
Let f ( x)  x 2  4 and let g ( x)  2 x  5 .
1. Find (f o g)(2)
2. (g o f) (2)
3. (f o f)(-1)
4. A general expression for (f o g)(x).
5. The domain of f o g.

1. Find the domain of f o g
2. Find a general expression for f o g.
Let f ( x) 
Functions, besides described in equation format, can also be described in other formats.
Two such are tables and graphs. Problems 7-10 are of these type.
