# How do I graph (f+g)(x)? f(x) = 2x^2 + 5x - 6 g(x) = x^2 -

Hello,How do I graph (f+g)(x)?f(x) = 2x^2 + 5x - 6
g(x) = x^2 - 2x + 4

We will have (f+g)(x)=3x^2+3x-2 and we plot it as given in the following fig.

kindly let me know if there is any doubt.

Hello,
Am I able to find f(-1) and g(-1) seperately, then add the two points together?
So it's (f+g)(x). Instead of adding the two functions and making a single quadratic function. Could I insert (-1) into (f)x and then (-1) into g(x) so that I find a point for both of them seperately, then add the two points together?

I.e.) If i put it into a table where my headers are X l f(x) l g(x) l (f+g)(x).
So I plug in -1 to X, then find f(x) and g(x). Which should then equal (f+g)(x) if I add them together?

yes, it can also be done.

Okay so what am I doing wrong?

When I plug (-1) into both f(x) and g(x) it doesn't give me -2 which is what you've got for (-1,-2)

you will have to f(x) and g(x) algebraically. Don' t put absolute values
