Using Function Notation - What is f(x)?

What is f(x)? It is a different way of writing “y” in equations, but it’s much more useful.

**Function Notation**

This lesson introduces function notation and provides several examples of determining function values.

Examples:

- Given f(x) = x
^{2}- 5x + 6

find f(4), f(-3) - Given g(t) = -t
^{2}+ 2t - 12

find g(-3), g(3x) - Given h(y) = 2y
^{2}- y + 7

find h(m - 2)

**Find the Linear Function Given Two Function Values in Function Notation**

This video introduces how function values in function notation gives points on the graph which can be used to determine the equation of the linear function.

Example:

Determine the equations of the linear function given

f(-1) = -7 and f(2) = -2

**Determine Function Values Using Function Notation on the TI84**

This video provides two examples of how to determine function values using function notation on the TI84 graphing calculator. The results are verified graphically.

Example:

Given f(x) = -2x^{2} + 3x + 7, find the following function values using your graphing calculator.

f(-1) and f(3/4)
