Calculus Notes Review of Composition of Functions and “Decomposing” Functions (Section 1.

3)

Name ____________________________

Use the following functions for numbers 1 – 6, h( x ) = x − 3 g ( x) = x 2 + 1 f ( x) = x Evaluate and simplify each composition. 1. k ( x) = f ( g ( x )) 2.

j ( x) = 2 − x

k ( x) = ( g o f ) ( x )

3.

k ( x) = g (h( x))

4.

k ( x) = f ( j ( x))

5.

k ( x) = j ( f ( x))

6.

k ( x) = j (h( g ( x)))

Express f as a composite of two functions, g and h. Also give the correct order of composition. 7. f ( x) = x + 2 8. f ( x) = 1 x −3

9.

f ( x) = x 2 − 3 x + 5

10.

f ( x) = 3sin ( x 2 )

11.

f ( x) = sin 2 x

12.

f ( x) = cos3 2 x

13.

f ( x) = 3sin 2 x + 4sin x

14.

f ( x) =

tan x 3 + tan 4 x
