Composite Function Calculator

Find the composition of functions step by step

The calculator will find the compositions $(f\circ g)(x)$, $(g\circ f)(x)$, $(f\circ f)(x)$, and $(f\circ g)(x)$ of the functions $f(x)$ and $g(x)$, with steps shown. It will also evaluate the compositions at the specified point if needed.

Find the composition of $f{\left(x \right)} = \frac{1}{x^{2} + x}$ and $g{\left(x \right)} = x + 7$.

Solution

$\left(f\circ g\right)\left(x\right) = f\left(g\left(x\right)\right) = f\left(x + 7\right) = \frac{1}{{\color{red}\left(x + 7\right)}^{2} + {\color{red}\left(x + 7\right)}} = \frac{1}{\left(x + 7\right) \left(x + 8\right)}$

$\left(g\circ f\right)\left(x\right) = g\left(f\left(x\right)\right) = g\left(\frac{1}{x^{2} + x}\right) = {\color{red}\left(\frac{1}{x^{2} + x}\right)} + 7 = 7 + \frac{1}{x^{2} + x}$

$\left(f\circ f\right)\left(x\right) = f\left(f\left(x\right)\right) = f\left(\frac{1}{x^{2} + x}\right) = \frac{1}{{\color{red}\left(\frac{1}{x^{2} + x}\right)}^{2} + {\color{red}\left(\frac{1}{x^{2} + x}\right)}} = \frac{x^{2} \left(x + 1\right)^{2}}{x^{2} + x + 1}$

$\left(g\circ g\right)\left(x\right) = g\left(g\left(x\right)\right) = g\left(x + 7\right) = {\color{red}\left(x + 7\right)} + 7 = x + 14$

$\left(f\circ g\right)\left(x\right) = \frac{1}{\left(x + 7\right) \left(x + 8\right)}$A
$\left(g\circ f\right)\left(x\right) = 7 + \frac{1}{x^{2} + x}$A
$\left(f\circ f\right)\left(x\right) = \frac{x^{2} \left(x + 1\right)^{2}}{x^{2} + x + 1}$A
$\left(g\circ g\right)\left(x\right) = x + 14$A
