I think (f*g)(-5) = f(-5)*g(-5). so first find f(-5)

uh well f(-5) = -2(-5) - 7 = 10 - 7 = 3

I'm not sure how you got 10x + 35, Did you see what I did? Try to find g(-5) now,

-4(-5)+6 20+6 26?

mhchen:

Yup so all you have to do now is multiply f(-5) and g(-5) together 3 * 26

mhchen:

okay I'm gonna assume (f*g)(x) is (fog)(x) or f(g(x)) a composite function

mhchen:

basically first you find g(-5) which you already did. It was 26 Then you plug 26 into f(x)

mhchen:

Can you find f(26)?

@mhchen -2(26)-7=-59?
