## Algebra and Trigonometry 10th Edition

The notation (fg)(6) can be rewritten as f(6) * g(6). This can be solved by evaluating the two functions at 6 and then multiplying the two numbers together. In this question: f(x) = x + 3 g(x) = $x^{2}$ - 2 Evaluate the functions and then multiply: First we want to evaluate f(x) at x = 6: f(6) = 6 + 3 = 9 Then we want to evaluate g(x) at x = 6: g(6) = $6^{2}$ - 2 = 36 - 2 = 34 Multiply the numbers together: (fg)(6) = 9 * 34 = 306 (fg)(6) = 306
