(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If F(x) = f(g(x)), where f(-2) = 8, f'(-2) = 4, f'(5) = 3, g(5) = -2, and g'(5) = 6, find F'(5).

2. Relevant equations

F'(x) = f'(g(x)) * g'(x) - Chain Rule

3. The attempt at a solution

F'(x) = f'(g(x)) * g'(x)

F'(5) = f'(g(5)) * g'(5)

F'(5) = f'(-2) * 6

F'(5) = 8 * 6

F'(5) = 48

The correct answer is 24 which doesnt make sense.
