Composite functions

Composite functions are functions of functions. This means that one function has to be evaluated and its output becomes the input for the second function. Notation for composite functions looks like f(g(x)), which means that the function g(x) is to be evaluated first and its output becomes the input for f(x). Both functions g(x) and f(x) have to be defined before any evaluation can take place.
