### Example Question #1 : How To Use The Quadratic Function

Solve the equation:

Explanation:

To solve the quadratic equation, , we set the equation equal to zero and then factor the quadratic, . Because these expressions multiply to equal 0, then it must be that at least one of the expressions equals 0. So we set up the corresponding equations  and      to obtain the answers  and

### Example Question #2 : Quadratic Formula

Solve for :

The solution is undefined.

Explanation:

To factor this equation, first find two numbers that multiply to 35 and sum to 12.  These numbers are 5 and 7.  Split up 12x using these two coefficients:

### Example Question #6 : How To Use The Quadratic Function

Solve for :

Explanation:

To find , we must factor the quadratic function:

### Example Question #151 : Functions And Lines

Solve for :

Explanation:

To find , we want to factor the quadratic function:

### Example Question #19 : How To Find F(X)

Which of the following equations represents a one-to-one function:

Explanation:

Only equation B maps each value of  into a unique value of  and in a similar way each and every value of  maps into one and only one value of .

### Example Question #47 : Algebraic Functions

Find .

Undefined

Explanation:

This question demonstrates that complicated functions are not complicated at every point.

To solve the function at x=1, all that is necessary is familiarity with the operations used.

### Example Question #1 : Understand Functions: Ccss.Math.Content.8.F.A.1

Define .

Evaluate .

Explanation:

To evaluate  substitute six in for every x in the equation.

### Example Question #5 : Understand Functions: Ccss.Math.Content.8.F.A.1

Define

Which of the following is equivalent to ?

Explanation:

To solve this problem replace every x in  with .

Therefore,

### Example Question #2 : Understand Functions: Ccss.Math.Content.8.F.A.1

Select the table that properly represents a function.

Explanation:

Each of the tables provided contains sets of ordered pairs. The input column represents the x-variables, and the output column represents the y-variables. We can tell if a set of ordered pairs represents a function when we match x-values to y-values.

In order for a table to represents a function, there must be one and only one input for every output. This means that our correct answer will have all unique input values:

Functions cannot have more than one input value that is the same; thus, the following tables do not represent a function:

### Example Question #3 : Understand Functions: Ccss.Math.Content.8.F.A.1

Select the table that properly represents a function.

Explanation:

Each of the tables provided contains sets of ordered pairs. The input column represents the x-variables, and the output column represents the y-variables. We can tell if a set of ordered pairs represents a function when we match x-values to y-values.

In order for a table to represents a function, there must be one and only one input for every output. This means that our correct answer will have all unique input values:
