Unformatted text preview: M119 Notes, Lecture 2 1.1 Functions Math functions a lot like other languages. We have constants (numbers) and variabies that work like nouns and that fimctions work like verbs. Just like in language, this notation can sometimes be ambiguous and we need to be careful and sometimes get the meaning from the content. In language, we often see words act in both ways: “Start your engines”werb, “Line up at the start ” — noun- In math, we might see: Mr) : x2 where h acts as a function, while we also might see the area of a triangle written as Pugh) = A where h is the variable height and the parentheses represent multiplication.

Even though it always means opposite or inverse, there are lots of inverses in mathematics. In addition to meaning subtraction and negative, we also have: _. 1 x =— x l f (x) BUT: f 'l (x) at in general (this is the notation for the inverse function) Here is a list of commonly used fimctions and their inverses.
