f(f(3)) = $$frac{5$$frac{17}{4}$) + 2}{3$$frac{17}{4})) - 5}) = $\frac{\frac{85 + 8}{4}}{\frac{51 - 20}{4}}$ = $\frac{93}{31}$ = 3. Next, we can find g$f(f(3))).
g(f(f(3))) = x2 - 2x - 1
g(f(f(3))) = (x - 1)2 - 2
g(f(f(3))) = (3 - 1)2 - 2 = 4 - 2 = 2

The question is "If f(x) = $$frac{5x + 2}{3x - 5}$ and g$x) = x2 – 2x – 1, then the value of g(f(f(3))) is :"
