Find \( gof\) and \(fog\), if \( f(x) = 8x^3\) and \(g(x)=x^\frac{1}{3}\)

Note: This is part 2 of a 2 part question, split as 2 separate questions here.

Can you answer this question?

Toolbox:
  • Given two functions $f:A \to B $ and $g:B \to C$, then composition of $f$ and $g$, $gof:A \to C$ by $ gof (x)=g(f(x))\;for\; all \;x \in A$
  • Given two functions $g:A \to B $ and $f:B \to C$, then composition of $g$ and $g$, $fog:A \to C$ by $ fog (x)=f(g(x))\;for\; all \;x \in A$
Given $f(x)=8x^3 \;and\;g(x)=x^{1/3}$
Step 1: Given two functions $f:A \to B $ and $g:B \to C$, then composition of $f$ and $g$, $gof:A \to C$ by $ gof (x)=g(f(x))\;for\; all \;x \in A$
Since $f(x) = 8x^3 \rightarrow (gof) (x)=g(f(x)) = g(8 x^3) = (8x^3)^{1/3} = 2x$
Step 2: Given two functions $g:A \to B $ and $f:B \to C$, then composition of $g$ and $g$, $fog:A \to C$ by $ fog (x)=f(g(x))\;for\; all \;x \in A$
Since $g(x)=x^{1/3} \rightarrow fog(x) = f(g(x)) = f (x^{1/3}) = 8(x^{1/3}) = 8x$
