Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn about evaluating the composition of two functions. We start by reviewing what evaluation means in the context of a function. We then move on to finding the composition of two functions, and use an example to illustrate how to do this. Finally, we explore two different ways of finding the composition of two functions, including evaluating the function and plugging in the value of x. With this lesson, you will be able to confidently evaluate the composition of any two functions.

Lesson Description:

Evaluating 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.
