Math 120 SP08 SBrodnick 1 1 1.2 : Functions from the Graphical Viewpoint 2 1.2: Functions from the Graphical Viewpoint Examples : 1. (see graph) What is… f(-2)? f(0)? f(4)? 2.(see graph) What is… f(-4)? f(-2)? f(1)? f(5)? domain of f? range of f? domain of f? range of f? 3 * Reminder : a function has one (and only one) output for each input. (can’t input 4 and get two different outputs.) * Easy way to tell if graph is a function: it passes Vertical Line Test * Evaluating functions on your calculator… Enter equation into Y 1 2 nd TRACE Read Y-values on table
