What is Function Composition? (in Math) Function composition in mathematics refers to an operation that uses two functions f ( ) and g ( ) and, as a result, produces another function. The result composition is written as (g º f)(x) which means g(f(x)). Let's consider an example f(x) = 5x+7 and g(x)= x2 Not to forget that "x" is only to denote the unknown formula, Here's the first step; f(x)= 5x+7, g(x)= (x)2 We first use f then apply for the result; (g x f)(x) = (5x + 7)2 Always be careful about which function comes first because if you inverse the function, the answer also gets affected. This series of worksheets and lessons will help students understand how to combine together and interact with multiple functions.
