    Complete the square on what? On f(x)?
    Sketch the graph of fg(x). What is the domain of this function? Hence, what is it's corresponding range?

    Having properly read the question, where do you get -16 from? The range is [-25, ifinity).

    (-16, infinity) the range of fg?

    Because i got the domain of g and put into the function of G then put the range of g into the function of f(X)

    Yeah, and you get that the minimum value of f(x) is clearly -25 which occurs when g(x) = 0 which occurs within the domain of g(x).

    [a,b] means all the real numbers between a and b including a and b.
    (a,b) means all the real numbers between a and b excluding a and b.
    [a,b) means all the real numbers between a and b including a and excluding b.
    (a,b] means all the real numbers between a and b excluding a and including b.
    Of course, if a or b are ±infinity, then there will be a round bracket because obviously infinity is not included.

    That's about as comprehensive of an explanation you can get.
    Thanks for trying to help me , somethings just don't go into me , this is 1 of them , sorry!

    Tbf this is nothing about maths ability, so dw in that respect.
    But it is common sense lol.

    Yeahh,i understand it a bit now, that if its square its including the number , if its a curved then its between that number and the the other bracket , well you tried to help!

    You are asking 'how do I know what the 'range of values is going to be', as opposed to the issue of notation - i.e what [ ] and ( ) etc mean.

    You just work it out from the question or whatever's being asked. Eg if I asked you what the domain of lnx is, then you know that since lnx is undefined for x less than or equal to 0, you get that x>0 so the domain is (0,infinity]

    As long as you see the point I am trying to illustrate. Eg domain (for real values of x) of  \sqrt x = ..
