f(x)   =  3x + p

 

g (x)  =  px + 4

 

f (g(x))  =  6x + q

 

Note that

 

f(g(x)  =   3 [px + 4] + p   =   3px + 12 + p

 

And this equals  6x + q

 

So

 

3px  + 12 + p   =  6x +  q

 

Equating terms we have that

 

3px   =   6x 

 

12 + p  = q

 

In the first equation, it's obvious that p  must   =  2

 

So.....

 

12 + 2  = q  ⇒    14  =   q

 

So   { p, q }  =  { 2, 14 }

 

 

 

cool cool cool
