1. f(x) = 8 - 10xg(x) = 5x + 4(fg)(x) = (8 - 10x)(5x + 4)(fg)(x) = 40x + 32 - 50-x^2 - 40x(fg)(x) = 32 - 50-x^2(fg)(-2) = 32 - 50(-2)^2(fg)(-2) = 32 - 200(fg)(-2) = -1682. The signs are reversed. Since then, Q4 = (x , -y)therefore P? = (-x , y), which belongs to Quadrant 2.(b) includes the points in the Quadrant II3. f(x) = 3x^2 + 1 g(x) = 1 - x(f - g)(x) = 3x^2 + 1 - (1 - x)(f - g)(x) = 3x^2 + 1 - 1 + x(f - g)(x) = 3x^2 + x(f - g)(2) = 3(2)^2 + 2(f - g)(2) = 14
