Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve the composition of two functions, which can be confusing due to the notation used. By breaking it down and understanding that the notation represents plugging one function into another, we can easily evaluate F, G of X, and G of X. By remembering that we need to use input and output values, we can successfully solve for the composition of two functions.

Lesson Description:

Solving the composition of two functions

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
