Equations as Functions

The solutions of an equation in two variables are
ordered pairs. Such an equation describes a
relation. The set of values of x is the domain of
the relation. The set of corresponding values of y
is the range.
Equations as Functions
Example:
a. Solve y = 3x + 4 if the domain is {-2, -1, 0, 1}.   x    y
-2

c. Is the equation a function?
Equations as Functions

Equations that represent functions can be written
in functional notation, f(x). The symbol f(x) is
read “f of x” and represents the value in the range
that corresponds to the value of x in the domain.
For example, f(8) is the element in the range that
corresponds to the element 8 in the domain.
Equations as Functions

One can determine a functional value by
substituting the given value for x into the equation.
For example, if f(x) = 7x – 5 and x = 2, then
f(2) = 7(2) – 5 or 9.
