Most likely, every formula you have ever used is a function. For example, finding out how much money you make: Your hours worked is your input, the earnings is your output, and there is a formula or rule that converts the input into output.
Today, we will see how a function is different from a relation, and how we use notation that makes it more clear what the input and output is.
Things you should know after today:
- definition of a function
- the vertical line test
- how input and output are related to (x,y) coordinates
- What f(3) means.
- How to determine f(3) from a graph and from an equation
- How to determine x if you know f(x) = something
