Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

f(x) = 2x

g(x) = x + 3

First let us find (fog)(x)

(fog)(x) = f(g(x)

             = f(x+3)

               = 2(x+3)

               = 2x + 6

==> (fog)(x) = 2x + 6

Now let us find (gof)(x):

(gof)(x) = g(f(x)

            = g(2x)

           = 2x + 3

==> (gof)(x) = 2x + 3
