Student, If you meant f(x) multiplied by g(x), then Philip gave you the correct answer (the down-vote is not justified). But if you meant f(g(x)), as Erin suggested, then replace x in f(x) with g(x), and simplify. f(g(x)) = g(x)^2 + 3g(x) + 2 = (x + 1)^2 + 3(x + 1) + 2 = ? You should be able to finish from here.
