 Question 386597: Let g(a) represent the number of gallons of sealant needed to seal a bamboo floor with area a. Let c(s) represent the cost of s gallons of sealant. Which composition makes sense: (c ◦ g)(a) or (g ◦ c)(s)? What does it represent? (HAVING TROUBLE WITH THIS ONE) Answer by Jk22(389)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!c o g(a) is the application of c on g. here g gives the number of gallons, and c their price, hence (c o g) makes sense. g o c would take the price of n gallons but then those are not an area, and hence cannot be argument of g, hence g o c has no sense. (c o g)(a) were the price of gallons to cover a floor with area a.
