Composition of functions is where one entire function is used as the input for the other function. Fog(x) is where the entire g expression should go into the f function where the x used to be, and vice-versa. One tip is to re-write the input as parentheses with a blank to start, and then go back and re-write the input function in the parentheses. Simplify. If your original problem has fog(x), then leave your result with the input x value- whereas if your original problem has fog(2), or some other input, then go back and put the 2 wherever the x's used to be.
