5 Rev.S08 Do We Really Use Functions of Two Variables? http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. The answer is YES. Many quantities in everyday life depend on more than one variable. Examples Area of a rectangle requires both width and length. Heat index is the function of temperature and humidity. Wind chill is determined by calculating the temperature and wind speed. Grade point average is computed using grades and credit hours.

6 Rev.S08 Let’s Take a Look at the Arithmetic Operations http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. The arithmetic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are computed by functions of two inputs . The addition function of f can be represented symbolically by f ( x,y ) = x + y , where z = f ( x,y ) . The independent variables are x and y . The dependent variable is z . The z output depends on the inputs x and y .
