# Express the function in the form $f \circ g$.$F(x) = \dfrac{\sqrt{x}}{1 + \sqrt{x}}$

## $$\text { Let } g(x)=\sqrt{x} \text { and } f(x)=\frac{x}{1+x} . \text { Then }(f \circ g)(x)=f(g(x))=f(\sqrt{x})=\frac{\sqrt{x}}{1+\sqrt{x}}=F(x)$$.

here we have capital F of X and we were told to think of capital F of X as the composition f of g. Another way to write that is with parentheses f of G of X. And if we do that, we can tell that G of X is the inside function and f of X is the outside function. So looking back at what we were given, we could say that the cube root of X is our inside function. It happens to appear twice so we could say that G of X is the cube root of X. Now, what was that put inside of that was put inside of F. So what would I have to look like? It would have X on the top and one plus X on the bottom. That way you could substitute the G function into both places.
