1. What is (f−g)(x)?

 

f(x)=x4−x2+9

g(x)=x3+3x2+12

 

 

2. What is (f⋅g)(x)?

 

f(x)=x2+2x−6

g(x)=x4+3

 

 

3. What is (f+g)(x)?

 

f(x)=x3−x

1. What is (f−g)(x)?

 

f(x)=x^4−x^2+9

g(x)=x^3+3x^2+12

 

f - g   =   [ x^4 - x^2 + 9 ]  - [ x^3 + 3x^2 + 12 ]  =

 

x^4  -- x^3  - x^2 + 3x^2  + 9  -  12   =

 

x^4 - x^3   +  2x^2  -  3 

 

2. What is (f⋅g)(x)?

 

f(x)=x^2+2x−6

g(x)=x^4+3

 

f*g   =  ( x^2 + 2x + 6)  ( x^4 + 3)  =

 

         x^2  +  2x  + 6        multiply each term on top by 3  and then by x^4      

x                 x^4  + 3

       ____________

         3x^2  + 6x + 18

+    x^6  + 2x^5 + 6x^4

     ________________

 

x^6  + 2x^5 + 6x^4  + 3x^2 + 6x + 18  

 

 

3. What is (f+g)(x)?

 

f(x)=x^3−x

g(x)=x^3+2x^2−10   

 

f +  g   =   [ x^3 - x ]  +  [ x^3 + 2x^2  - 10  ]  =   2x^3 + 2x^2 - x  - 10
