here we have capital F of X equals co sine squared X and another way to write that is co sign of X quantity squared. Okay, we're told to think of capital F of X as a composition of F of G and another way to write that is with parentheses f of g of X. If we write it this way, we can see that G of X is the inside function and f of X is the outside function. So looking back at what we were given, Coastline X is the inside function. So let's let g of x equal co sign of X and then the outside function is the squaring function. So let's let f of x equal x squared. And if we were to put co sign of X into f of X, we would get our original capital F function.
