Perhaps start by defining the function $f(x)$, then you have something to work with. Note: $f(x) = mx + c$, can you find the slope $m$ and $y$intercept $c$?

thanks for the quick reply. Yes the slope would be 1 or B=1 because m= y2y1 __________ x2x1

We could replace 'c' by 'b' or 'e' or any other letter of symbol if we wanted to.

so point (5,4) would now become point (5,3) So A is the correct answer?

$f(f(x)) = f(x1) = (x1)1 = x  2 = g(x)$. For arbitrary slope and intercept: $f(x) = mx + b$, $f(f(x)) = f(mx + c) = m(mx + c) + c = m^2 x + mc + c = m^2 x + c(m + 1)$
