## 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 = -3 Then we want to evaluate g(x) at x = -6: g(-6) = $(-6)^{2}$ - 2 = 36 - 2 = 34 Multiply the numbers together: (fg)(-6) = -3 * 34 = -102
