thanks guys especially you canere.

But, you probably ought to make your own mind to this.

I have now the reasonings are simple now that I think of it.

my theory is that he is in a dream but his totem doesn't work because it is his dream and he controls the gravity of things. thus explaining the toppling over but on the other hand he doesn't care because he is with his children. some other people might say that if he was in dream his wife would be there. what I think is that he finally back with his children making his mind at  peace with her death. also at the beginning he is in limbo with the asian guy (sorry can't remember his name). this means that the movie ended in a dream and he had died some way in the dream. thus when he died in limbo it is just like nothing had happened because of the time span in the dream he was in. you see in the last dream in which he had died a life time was like one minute in the real world. so he was in a dream the whole time until he finally woke up on the plane and went home to his children.

just in case you are back tracking that yes I did change my solution in the end.

f(x) = 23x+95                 g(x) = 8382

Find f(g).

Technically, f(g) = 23g+95, because your only input there is g, not g(x).

[/overly-nitpicky]

But yes, 192881 is the right answer.

Goin to use this Inception-related thread to go off on a lil tangent here...

Big problem I have with this movie...since its release people have been calling things that are within themselves "Inception"

Inception - an act, process, or instance of beginning : commencement

Meta - what people mean when they say "inception" since the movie came out

some other people might say that if he was in dream his wife would be there. what I think is that he finally back with his children making his mind at  peace with her death.

Actually, this is shown when he kills her in Limbo. He has finally come to an acceptance of her death and his own part in it, and she would not return in his dreams again like she had done at any other time (unless, presumably, if he was revisiting memories).
She would be - dead, and would not haunt his dreams any more.

I do agree with this, it's kinda stupid. People keep considering the "dream within a dream" the inception, when it in fact is what they are set out to do, that is the inception. Inserting the idea of Fischer's father wanting him to make his own firm and live his own life is what the movie is about, not going deeper or being within something. That is simply the method they have to use, the same way they also used several dreamscapes in their extraction of Saito's information.
They even describe it in the movie...

I totally agree!
Arthur even explained that inception was the idea of placing an idea in somebody's without them being able to tell the origin of the thought.
