Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to find the composition of two functions with rational exponents. The instructor goes through two examples of finding f of g of x and g of f of x, breaking down the steps for each. The key takeaway is to plug in the inner function into the outer function and simplify using exponent rules. The lesson also emphasizes checking for any restrictions in the domain.

Lesson Description:

Finding the composition of two functions with rational exponents

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.
