What are Composite Functions?
In this post, we define and use the composite function f(g(x)) of functions f(x) and g(x) where appropriate and identify the domain and range of a composite function. This is part of the VCE Maths Methods course under the topic Algebra and sub-part Composite Functions, Transformations and Inverses, specifically focusing on composite functions. A composite function is a function inside a function, or a function made up of another function, where the output of one is the input of another.
Watch this video to learn all about composite functions.
This video explains composite functions as a combination of more than one function.
Examples of Composite Functions
These videos cover a large range of examples which will help you to understand how composite functions work, and how they can be solved.
