 Question 209368: Hi, I need some help when it comes to finding the domain and ranges in quadratic functions. What I mean is that well in the problem there is a graph and there are some black circles(points, ordered pairs) and then there are some white circles(points, ordered pairs) outlined in black...do i find the domain for all of those points?

 Question 210110: I am trying to work a problem and not sure if I am on the right track. The problem is: f(x)= 3x/x+2 and g(x)= 2x+1/2 I am trying to figure the following f o g(2) and g o f(2) I have tried multiple times and am still confused as to how I am to set this up. So far, I have f(g(2))= 2(2)+1/2 = 5/2 but I am not sure if this is correct. I have reviewed and read but still am confused. Thanks - Lori Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28504)
