    you mean "functions"...

    that's a definition as far as I am concerned. How are you defining (f+g)(x)?

    This appears to be the definition of the sum of two functions. It is valid as long as f and g have the same domains and ranges.

    They don't need the same range.

    Try sin(x) + x.
