1. FUNCTIONS
Domain
Range
f
x
y =f(x)
A function is an operation performed on an input (x) to
produce an output (y = f(x) )
The Domain of f is the set of all allowable inputs (x
values)
The Range of f is the set of all outputs (y values)
X values are independent
Y values are dependent

# Functions can be expressed in 2 forms f: x --- 2x + 1 f(x) = 2x + 1

Have a value for each x in the domain
Have only one value for each x in the domain
This is not a function as
some x values
correspond to two y
values.

2. COMPOSITE FUNCTIONS
When one function is followed by another, the resultant effect can be expresses as a
single function. When functions are combined like this, the resultant function is
known as a composite function
Example:
Find h(x) = g(f(x)) if,
f(x) = 2x
g(x) = x+4
This composite function is f followed by g (the order is important)
g(f(x)) = g(2x)
So,
g(x) = x+4
g(2x) = 2x + 4
h(x) = 2x+4

COMPOSITE FUNCTIONS
Note: gf(x) does not mean g(x)
times f(x).
Finding g(f(x))
f
g
f(x)
g(f(x))
= gf(x)
gf(x) means “g of f of x” i.e g(f(x)).
First we apply the f function.
Then the output of the f function becomes the
input for the g function.
Notice that gf means f first and then g.
Example if f(x) = x + 3, x
and g(x) = x 2 , x
then
Note : When finding
f(g(x))
Replace all the x’s in the
rule for the f funcion
with the expression for
g(x) in a bracket.
e.g If f(x) = x 2 –2x
then f(x-2) = (x-2) 2 –
2(x-2)
gf(x) = g(f(x)) = g(x + 3) = (x+3) 2 , x
fg(x) = f(g(x)) = f(x 2 ) = x 2 +3, x
g 2 (x) means g(g(x)) = g(x 2 ) = (x 2 ) 2 = x 4 ,
f 2 (x) means f(f(x)) = f(x+3) = (x+3) + 3 = x + 6 ,

Notice that fg and gf are not the same.
The Domain of gf is the same as the Domain of f since f
is the first function to be applied.
The Domain of fg is the same as the Domain of g.
For gf to be properly defined the Range (output set) of f
must fit inside the Domain (input set) of g.
For example if g(x)
= √x , x ≥ 0 and f(x) = x – 2, x
• Then gf would not be well defined as the output of f could
be a negative number and this is not allowed as an input
for g.
However fg is well defined, fg(x) = √x – 2, x ≥ 0.
