I have the function:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]y=\sqrt{x+\sqrt{x+\sqrt{x}}}[/tex]

I need to find separate, smaller functions which will result in the composition of this function.

I tried but all I ended up with was:

[tex]f(x)=\sqrt{x}[/tex]

[tex]g(x)=x+\sqrt{x+\sqrt{x}}[/tex]

Therefore, [tex]y=f(g(x))[/tex]

However, this is obviously a very inefficient way of finding the composition of this function.

Can anyone lead me in the right direction?
