Solutions

Chapter 2.6, Problem 58E
To determine

To Express : The Function G(x)=2(3+x)2 in the form fgh .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 58E

The Final Answer is h(x)=x , g(x)=(3+x)2 and f(x)=2x .

Explanation of Solution

Given information : The function G(x)=2(3+x)2 is given.

Formula used : The concept of Combining Functions is used.

Calculation :

Since, the formula of G(x) says to add 3 to x and then square it and then divide 2 by it, so we let,

  h(x)=x , g(x)=(3+x)2 and f(x)=2x .

Thus,

  fgh(x)=f(g(h(x)))f(g(x))f((3+x)2)2(3+x)2= G(x)

Hence, the functions h, g, f, are h(x)=x , g(x)=(3+x)2 and f(x)=2x .
