5) It's possible to compose two functions to get a composite function. For example,
let f R R, and f(x) 2x 1 (i.e., function f maps a real number x to a real number
given by 2x +1;), and let g: RR, and g(x) = x ^2 (i.e., function g maps any real
number to its square). Then function (g f) is defined as follows: (g
g(f(x)), i.e., function (g f) maps x to g(f(x)) (i.e., x is first mapped to a real number
f(x), and then f(x) is in turn mapped to number g(f(x)) using rule of function g.
So (g f)(x) g(2x 1) (2x 1)^2.i. Is (g f)(x) a function? Why?
