Lesson 11 Summary
Graph of f: Given a function f whose domain D and the range are subsets of the real numbers, the graph of f is the set of ordered pairs in the Cartesian plane given by {(x, f(x)) | x ∈ D}
When we graph a function we want to think of “Input” and “Output”
Declare x an integer
Let f(x) = 2x + 1
Initialize G as {}
For all x from -1 to 4
Append (x, f(x)) to G
Next x
Plot G
Declare x a real
Let f(x) = 2x + 3
Initialize G as {}
For all x such that 2 ≤ x ≤ 8
Append (x, f(x)) to G
Next x
Plot G
Set Builder Notation
{(x, 2x + 1) | x is an integer, -1 ≤ x ≤ 4}
{(x, 2x + 3) | x is real, 2 ≤ x ≤ 8}
