To find the composition of functions ( f(x) ) and ( g(x) ), denoted as ( f \circ g ) and ( g \circ f ), follow these steps:
 For ( f \circ g ), substitute ( g(x) ) into ( f(x) ), meaning replace every occurrence of ( x ) in ( f(x) ) with ( g(x) ).
 For ( g \circ f ), substitute ( f(x) ) into ( g(x) ), meaning replace every occurrence of ( x ) in ( g(x) ) with ( f(x) ).
Given ( f(x) = \frac{x}{x + 1} ) and ( g(x) = x^2  1 ), we can find the compositions as follows:

( f \circ g ): Substitute ( g(x) = x^2  1 ) into ( f(x) ): [ f \circ g = f(g(x)) = f(x^2  1) = \frac{x^2  1}{x^2  1 + 1} = \frac{x^2  1}{x^2} ]

( g \circ f ): Substitute ( f(x) = \frac{x}{x + 1} ) into ( g(x) ): [ g \circ f = g(f(x)) = g\left(\frac{x}{x + 1}\right) = \left(\frac{x}{x + 1}\right)^2  1 = \frac{x^2}{(x + 1)^2}  1 ]

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
