Solutions

Chapter 2.6, Problem 48E
To determine

To find: The function fogoh for functions f(x)=x , g(x)=xx1 and h(x)=x3 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 48E

The function fogoh for functions f(x)=x , g(x)=xx1 and h(x)=x3 is equal to x3x31 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The functions are f(x)=x , g(x)=xx1 and h(x)=x3 .

Calculation:

Simplify the function fogoh .

  (fogoh)(x)=(fog)(h(x))=(fog)(x3)=f(g(x3))

Substitute x3 for x in g(x)=xx1 .

  (fogoh)(x)=f(g(x3))=f(x3x31)

Substitute x3x31 for x in f(x)=x .

  (fogoh)(x)=f(x3x31)=x3x31

Therefore, the function fogoh for functions f(x)=x , g(x)=xx1 and h(x)=x3 is equal to x3x31 .
