Solutions

Chapter 2.6, Problem 54E
To determine

To Express : The Function H(x) = 1+x in the form fg .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 54E

Answer is g(x)=1+x and f(x)=x .

Explanation of Solution

Given information : The function H(x) = 1+x is given.

Formula used : The concept of Combining Functions is used.

Calculation :

Since, the formula of H(x) says to add 1 to x and then take root, we let

  g(x)=1+x And f(x)=x

Thus,

  fg(x)=f(g(x))f(1+x)1+x = H(x)

Hence, the functions g and f, are g(x)=1+x and f(x)=x .
