## Algebra and Trigonometry 10th Edition

The notation (f/g)(5) can be rewritten as f(5) / g(5). This can be solved by evaluating the two functions at 5 and dividing the two numbers. In this question: f(x) = x + 3 g(x) = $x^{2}$ - 2 Evaluate the functions and then divide: First we want to evaluate f(x) at x = 5: f(5) = 5 + 3 = 8 Then we want to evaluate g(x) at x = 5: g(5) = $(5)^{2}$ - 2 = 25 - 2 = 23 Divide the numbers: (f/g)(5) = 8/ 23 (f/g)(5) = 8/ 23
