Example Question #41 : Algebraic Functions

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Example Question #3371 : Algebra 1

.

Find .

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Finding means plugging in in place of x into the function . In this case, we are told that , so we are multiplying by 2 and then adding 17:

order of opperations tells us to first multiply:

and now add:

Example Question #42 : How To Find F(X)

.

Evaluate .

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Evaluating means plugging 5 in for x in the function . In this case, we are told that , so that is what we will do to 5 - multiply by 2, then square the product: 

order of opperations [PEMDAS] tells us that first we will be doing what is in the parentheses, so we will multiply first:

now we can square 10 for the final answer:

Find .

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Evaluating means plugging in 2 for x in the function . In this case we are told that , so that is what we'll do with 2:

 Order of opperations [PEMDAS] tells us to do parentheses first, but no opperations are taking place in parentheses. Next we will do exponents:

The next step in order of opperations is multiplication, so we will next multiply 3 and 4:

finally we will subtract:
