What is t(s(3)???

0 votes

I have an equation

S(x)=-x-1

t(x)=2x2+2

Can you tell me how to get the value of t(s(3)?

t[sx)] can be evaluated by replacing x with s(x) in the equation for t(x).

t[s(x)] = 2[s(x)]2 + 2

          = 2(-x-1)2 + 2 {Replacing s(x) with -x -1}

So

t[s(3)] = 2(-3-1)2 + 2  {Substitute 3 for x}

          = 2(-4)2 + 2

          = 34

Or

s(3) = -3 -1 = -4

t[s(3)] = 2[-4]2 + 2

           = 34
