A composite function is a function that depends on another function. A composite function is created when one function is substituted into another function. For example, f(g(x)) is the composite function that is formed when g(x) is substituted for x in f(x). f(g(x)) is read as “f of g of x”.

Also, what does composition of functions mean?

Composite Functions. Suppose you are given the two functions f (x) = 2x + 3 and g(x) = –x2 + 5. Composition means that you can plug g(x) into f (x). This is written as “( f o g)(x)”, which is pronounced as “f-compose-g of x”.

## What are the real numbers?

In mathematics, a real number is a value of a continuous quantity that can represent a distance along a line. The real numbers include all the rational numbers, such as the integer −5 and the fraction 4/3, and all the irrational numbers, such as √2 (1.41421356, the square root of 2, an irrational algebraic number).
