Question

Answered step-by-step

(a) If $ g(x) = 2x + 1 $ and $ h(x) = 4x^2 + 4x + 7 $, find a function $ f $ such that $ f \circ g = h $. (Think about what operations you would have to perform on the formula for $ g $ to end up with the formula for $ h $.)(b) If $ f(x) = 3x + 5 $ and $ h(x) = 3x^2 + 3x + 2 $, find a function $ g $ such that $ f \circ g = h $.

A multivariate function is a function whose value depends on several variables. In contrast, a univariate function is a function whose value depends on only one variable. A multivariate function is also called a multivariate expression, a multivariate polynomial, a multivariate series, or a multivariate function of several variables.

In calculus, partial derivatives are derivatives of a function with respect to one or more of its arguments, where the other arguments are treated as constants. Partial derivatives contrast with total derivatives, which are derivatives of the total function with respect to all of its arguments.

So here we have function h of X, and we know that h of X is f f G G is the inside function and we know it. But we don't know the outside function. That's what we're going to find. We're going to find F. So let's find a way to rewrite H. And when you see four x squared here and you see two X here, hopefully you realize that in some way we must have squared G. So let's figure out what G squared is. G squared would be two x plus one quantity squared, and that would be four x squared plus four x plus one. So let's think of age as four X squared plus four x plus one plus six. We have to get that seven in there, so we need one in six to give us seven. And now we can rewrite that perfect try no meal square as two x plus one quantity squared and then we have the plus six. So if we think of age in this way, we can see the inside function. G is two x plus one on the outside function. Must be. Then what? We get when we square that and then add six. So f of X is X squared plus six for part B. We have a similar situation where we have a function h of X, and now we know the outside function f but we don't know the inside function G. That's what we have to figure out. So what we want to do is work on H and get it to look more like this three times something plus five. So if we change h a little bit by factoring out of three, we have three times X squared plus X plus two. Well, we need that to be plus five on the end, not plus two. So we need to add another three. But how can we just add three? We can't just add three unless we also subtract three. So what I'm going to dio is incorporate this minus three into the inside of the parentheses in some way. So if I write it as three times a quantity X squared plus X minus one and then the two plus three on the outside is going to be plus five. Here we have our minus three on the inside compensating for are extra plus three on the outside. So we have three times a quantity X squared plus X minus one plus five that is H of X, rewritten in a different form. Now that matches with our f of X three times something plus five. So that's something on the inside that must be RG so g of X is X squared plus X minus one.
