To calculate:To evaluate $$(f*g)(70)\ and\ (g*f)(70)$$.
Professor Harsh gave a test to his college algebra class and nobody got more than 80 points (out of 100) on the test.
One problem worth 8 points had insufficient data, so nobody could solve that problem.
a. Increasing everyone's score by 10% and
b. Giving everyone 8 bonus points
c. x represents the original score of a student

The function $$f(x) = 1$$.larepresents the score increased by 10%
The function $$g(x) = x + 8$$ represents the score increased by 8 points
The function $$(f*g)(x) = 1.1(x + 8)$$ represents the final score when the score is first increased by 8 bonus points and then by 10%
The function $$(f*g)(x) = 1.1x + 8$$ represents the final score when the score is first increased by 10% and then by 8 bonus points
Calculation:
Consider $$(f*g)(x) = 1.1(x+8)$$
Plugging x= 70 in the above equation,
$$(f*g)(x) = 1.1(70 +8) = 1.1 (78) = 85.8$$
Consider $$(g*f)(x) = 1.1x +8$$
Plugging x = 70 in the above equation,
$$(g*f)(x) = 1.1(70) +8 =77+8=85$$.
