Let\( f(x) = 5x+3\) and \(g(x)=x^2-2\). What is \(g(f(-1))\)?

 

thank you in advance. :)

Let \(f(x) = 5x+3\) and \(g(x)=x^2-2\). What is \(g(f(-1))\)?

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \mathbf{f(x)} &=& \mathbf{5x+3} \quad | \quad x=-1 \\ f(-1) &=& 5(-1)+3 \\ f(-1) &=& -5+3 \\ \mathbf{f(-1)} &=& \mathbf{-2} \\ \hline && \mathbf{g(f(-1))} \quad | \quad f(-1)=-2 \\ &=& g(-2) \quad | \quad \mathbf{g(x)=x^2-2},\ x=-2 \\ &=& (-2)^2-2 \\ &=& 4-2 \\ &=& \mathbf{2} \\ \hline \end{array}\)

 

\(\mathbf{g(f(-1))} = \mathbf{2} \)
