2. Functions and Graphs 2.1 Functions Cartesian Coordinate System y 9 x2 II I III IV A function is a rule (process or method) that produces a correspondence between two sets of elements such that to each element in the first set, there is corresponds one and only one element in the second set. The first set is called the domain and the second set is called the range. 5 1 a w A x 10 2 b x B y 15 3 y C y x x 1, x 1 x f f(x) x exactly one y function (rule for finding y) For every input, there is exactly one output. Rule: Compute y by dividing x by 5 f x x 5 4 y 3x 8 y2 x2 9 Vertical line test An equation defines a function if each vertical line in the coordinate system passes through at most one point in the graph of the equation. If any vertical line passes through two or more points on the graph of the equation, then the equation does not define a function. If a function is specified by an equation and the domain is not indicated, then we assume the domain is the set of all real number replacements of the input variable that produce real values for the output variable. In many applied problems, the domain is determined by practical considerations within the problem. meaningful input – domain corresponding output – range Finding the Domain 1 1 y y 4 x y x 4 x The symbol f x For any element x in the domain of the function f, the symbol f x represents an element in the range of f , which corresponds to x in the domain of f. If x is an input value, then f x is the corresponding output value. If x is not in the domain of f, then f is not defined at x, and f x does not exist. 12 f x g x 1 x2 h x x 1 x2 f 6, f 2, g 2, f 2, f 0 g 1 h10 Domains? f x x2 2x 7 f a f a h f a h f a f a h f a h Applications Cost function Cost=(fixed costs)+(variable costs) C a bx Price-Demand function p m nx Revenue function Revenue=(number sold) * (price per item) Profit function P R C A camera manufacturer wholesales to retail outlets across the US.

The domain and range are both the set of all reals.

Price-Demand (skip) At the beginning of the 21st century, the world demand for crude oil was about 75 million barrels per day and the price of a barrel fluctuated between $20 and $40. Suppose the daily demand for crude oil is 76.1 million barrels when the price is $25.52 per barrel and the demand drops to 74.9 million barrels when the price rises to $33.68. Assuming a linear relationship between the demand x and the price p, find a linear function that models the price- demand relationship for crude oil. Use this to predict the demand if the price rises to $39.12. The daily supply of crude oil also varies with the price. Suppose that the daily supply is 73.4 million barrels when the price is $23.84, and this supply rises to 77.4 million barrels when the price rises to $34.24. Assuming a linear relationship between supply x and price p, find a linear function that models the price-supply relationship for crude oil. Use this model to predict the supply if the price drops to $20.98 per barrel. The price tends to stabilize at the point of intersection of the demand and supply functions. This point is called the equilibrium point. 2.6 x 167 6.8 x 543 2.3 Quadratic Functions If a, b, and c are real numbers with a 0 , then the function f x ax 2 bx c is a quadratic function and its graph is a parabola.
