Solutions

Chapter 2.6, Problem 53E
To determine

To find: The functions f(x) and g(x) such that F(x)=|1x3| is equal to fog .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 53E

The functions f(x) and g(x) such that F(x)=|1x3| is equal to fog are |x| and 1x3 respectively.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The function is F(x)=|1x3| .

Calculation:

The function F(x)=|1x3| is absolute value of 1x3 .

So, take the functions f(x) equal to |x| and g(x) equal to 1x3 .

Verify that (fog)(x)=F(x) .

  (fog)(x)=f(g(x))=f(1x3)=|1x3|=F(x)

Therefore, the functions f(x) and g(x) such that F(x)=|1x3| is equal to fog are |x| and 1x3 respectively.
