Composite Functions occur when you apply the result one function to another. They are also referred to as Compound functions. Because of this one function depends on the other. These functions are often used to help describe populations and movement within population of biology. They are usually set up in a result of f(x) passed through g(x). This usually results in the output of g(f(x)). In this section you will find worksheets that have you evaluate composite functions. Your students will use these worksheets in order to learn how to solve composite (also known as compound) functions.
What Are Composite Functions?
A composite function depends on another function. A composite function is shaped when one function is replaced into another function. For instance, f(g(x)) is the composite function that is molded when g(x) is replaced for x in f(x).
Some real-word illustrations can be found. You use composite functions when you buy a sale (reduced) item. When you are standing at a shop deciding if you can afford the subject, the first thing you calculate is the discount.
These worksheets explain how to determine the value of compound functions. Students will use a provided set of functions to solve for different expressions.
