3 Composition is a binary operation like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are binary operations. (meaning they operate on two elements) f+g f-g fgfg The composition symbol is: Thus

5 The easiest way to describe composition is to say it is like substitution. In fact Read f of g of x which means substitute g(x) for x in the f(x) expression.

6 For example: Suppose f(x)= 2x + 3, and g(x) = 8 - x Then Means substitute the g function for x in the f function… like this f(x)= 2x + 3 f(g(x) )= 2 g(x) + 3

7 f(x)= 2x + 3, and g(x) = 8 - x f(x)= 2x + 3 f(g(x) )= 2 g(x) + 3 Now substitute what g equals for g(x) f(8 - x)= 2 (8 - x) + 3 = x + 3 = x So, = x

8 An interesting fact is that most of the time. Let’s see if this is the case for the previous example.

9 f(x) = 2x + 3, andg(x) = 8 - x Thus we will substitute f into g. g(x) = 8 - x g(f(x) ) = 8 - f(x) Now substitute what f(x) is: g(2x + 3) = 8 - (2x + 3) = 8 - 2x - 3 = 5 - 2x
