Explain your answer. /0. a # , CS Scanned with CamScanner 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.
