Solutions

Chapter 1.3, Problem 46E
To determine

To express: The function u(t)=tant1+tant in the form of (fg)(t).

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 46E

The function u(t)=tant1+tant can be expressed as u(t)=f(g(t)), where f(t)=t1+t and  g(t)=tant.

Explanation of Solution

Name the expression tant as  g(t)=tant.

Thus, u(t)=g(t)1+g(t).

Replace g(t) by t to obtain the expression for f(t).

Therefore, f(t)=t1+t.

Hence, it can be concluded that u(t)=tant1+tant can be expressed as (fg)(t)=f(g(t)) where f(t)=t1+t and  g(t)=tant.

Verification:

The composite function (fg)(t) is defined as follows.

(fg)(t)=f(g(t))

Substitute tant for t in f(t).

f(tant)=tant1+tant=u(t)

Thus, it is verified that u(t)=tant1+tant can be expressed as (fg)(t)=f(g(t)) where f(t)=t1+t and  g(t)=tant.
