Write the equations that represent L(x) and R(x).
Lacey and Richens decide to connect their two machines, so that Lacey’s output becomes Richens’s input. If 3 is the initial input, what is the eventual output?
What if the order of the machines was changed? Would it change the output? Justify your answer.
L(x) = x2−1
R(x) = 3(x + 2)
Try computing the result for x = 3 if the order is reversed.
