1. Homework Statement
If f and g are both increasing functions, is it true that f(g(x)) is also increasing? Either prove that it is true or five an example that proves it false.


2. Homework Equations



3. The Attempt at a Solution
I know that it is indeed also increasing, but I'm unsure how to prove it.
