## Given that f(x)=6x+5 find the value of f(a)+f(2a)

# 1 Answer

f(x) = 6x+5

The notation f(a) is short for f(x=a). Similarly, f(2a) is f(x=2a). So just replace the x in the function with a or 2a:

f(x) = 6x + 5

f(a) = 6a + 5

f(2a) = 6(2a) + 5 = 12a + 5

So:

f(a) + f(2a) = 6a + 5 + 12a + 5

Combine like terms to get the answer.
