confused about a limit question

Given that lim x->c f(x)=6 and that lim x->c g(x)= -4, evaluate the following limit. Assume that c is a constant. The x in front of the f is confusing me.
lim [xf(x) + 3 g(x)]^2
x->c

Re: confused about a limit question

Your answer should have "c" in it (at least once)...
does that give you some confidence moving forward?
