Express the function $$y=\sqrt{x^2+4}$$as a composition of $$y=f(g(x))$$of the two simpler functions $$y= f(u)$$and $$u=g(x)$$

$$f(u) =$$

$$g(x)=$$

I know how to put a function into another function but I don't know what this thing is asking :S

So I think I've got it....

I believe the y function is doing the square root so...

f(u) = x+4

g(x)= x^2

??

Try  $$g(x)=x^2+4$$  and  $$f(u)=\sqrt u$$

or  $$g(x)=x^2$$   and  $$f(u)=\sqrt{u+4}$$

or ...

.     $$y=\sqrt{x^2+4}$$

.     $$y=Root\ from \ ( x^2+4)$$

.               u                    g

f(u)=$$\sqrt{g(x)}$$

$$g(x)=(x^2+4)$$

I hope I could help.

Alan was correct with, g(x)=x^2+4 and f(u)=sqrt(u)
