2.1 Functions and Their Representations Function is a set of ordered pairs (x, y) where each x-value corresponds to exactly one y-value. Function notation y = f(x) is called function notation. The input is x and the output is y . The name of the function is f. Name of the function Output Input The y is the dependent variable , and x is the independent variable . The expression f(4) = 28 means that the result of the function is 28 when the input is 4. The letters , f, g, and h are commonly used to denote function names. )} 1 , 3 ( ), 3 , 2 ( ), 3 , 1 {( Ex. f ) ( x f y

2.1 Functions and Their Representations Using a real-world connection: Distance Traveled: A bicyclist is 4 miles from home, riding away from home at 8 mph. The function that represents the distance traveled is D(x) = 8x + 4 (symbolic representation) . a) Make a numerical representation that shows the bicyclist’s distance from home after 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 hours. Hours (x) Distance (D) 0 4 1 12 2 20 3 28 4 36 b) Make a graphical representation that shows the bicyclist’s distance from home after 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 hours.
2.1 Functions and Their Representations The domain of a function is the set of all valid inputs. That is, all values which do no violate rules, such as division or square root. Find the domain of f . Since any value of x can be multiplied with -5 and added to 3, we say the domain is “all real numbers.” Since the denominator cannot equal 0, the domain can be any number except x=4. Domain is all numbers ≠ 4. Since the square root of negative numbers are not real numbers, x cannot be any negative number. Domain is all numbers ≥ 0. 3 5 ) ( a) x x f x x x f 4 2 ) ( b) x x f 4 ) ( c)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
