"Given that f(1) = 9, f'(1) = 5, g(9) = 6 and g'(9) = 4, what is the approximate value of g(f(1.05))?"

You can just use the following script to do it. You construct two functions f and g such that they have a slope of 5 and 4 respectively and add a constant such that f(1) = 9 and g(9)=6 then evaluate at 1.05 using g(f(1.05)).

You could even use the differential equation solvers to solve these as initial value problems and stick it in... that said, this sounds like a Hughes-Hallett homework problem.
