Function Notation and Evaluating Functions

Thursday, December 21, 2023

Function notation is a shortened method way to write functions.
Let's go over the parts of function notation.

function notation

The f is the name of the function. f is usually used but any letter can be used. 
The x is the input value. 
It is read f of x and not f times x.

When you are asked to evaluate a function you substitute a value for x which is the input in order to find the output.

Evaluate  f(x) = 4x + 5 when x is 2
f(2) = 4 ( 2 ) + 5
f(2) = 8 + 5
f(2) = 13

If you evaluate f(x) = 5x + 2r when x = -4r + 3m
You simply plug in the value for x 
f(-4r + 3m ) = 5( -4r + 3m ) + 2r
