1. CONSTANT FUNCTION
This is a special form of linear function.A function is said to be constant when its slope,m=0.The domain of a constant function is a set of all real numbers and its range is a single number y-intercept(b).The constant function is an even function whose graph is constant over the domain.The graph makes a horizontal line with its range (y-intercept (b)).The expression for the constant function is

F(x)=b, where b is a real number.
2. IDENTITY FUNCTION
This is also a special form of linear function but both the domain and range are sets of real numbers.Identity function has a graph where slope,m=1 and y-intercept is 0.The line consists of all points for which x-co-ordinate equals the y-co-ordinate.The identity function increases over its domain and the expression for identity function is

F(x)=x
3. SQUARE FUNCTION
The domain of a square function is a set of real numbers and the range ia set of all positive numbers.The graph is a parabola which intersects at(0,0).The square function is an even function that is decreasing on the interval (-∞,0) and increasing on the interval (0,∞).The expression is

F(x)=x^2
4.CUBE FUNCTION
The domain and range of a cube function is a set of real numbers.The intercept of a cube function graph is at(0,0).The function is odd an increases on the interval(-∞,∞),it is given as
F(x)=x^3
5.SQUARE ROOT FUNCTION
The domain and range of the square root function are the set of positive(non-negative) real numbers.The intercept of the graph is at (0,0).The square-root function is neither even nor odd and is increasing on the interval (0,∞).It is given as

F(x)=√x

3.1 The Production Function
Production function is a tool of analysis used in explaining the input-output relationship.
It describes the technical relationship between inputs and output in physical terms. In its
general form, it holds that production of a given commodity depends on certain specific
inputs. In its specific form, it presents the quantitative relationships between inputs and
outputs. A productionfunction may take the form of a schedule, a graph line or a curve,
an algebraic equation or a mathematical model. The production function represents the
technology of a firm.
An empirical production function is generally so complex to include a wide range of
inputs: land, labour, capital, raw materials, time, and technology. These variables form
the independent variables in a firm’s actual production function. A firm’s long-run
production function is of the form:
Q = f(Ld, L, K, M, T, t) (3.1.1)
where Ld = land and building; L = labour; K = capital; M = materials; T = technology;
and, t = time.
For sake of convenience, economists have reduced the number of variables used in a
production function to only two: capital (K) and labour (L). Therefore, in the analysis of
input-output relations, the production function is expressed as:
Q = f(K, L) (3.1.2)
Equation (3.1.2) represents the algebraic or...

...communicating simple warnings about the connection between Reye's syndrome and the use of aspirin in children (1999, p. 1645).
Despite the potential of news media to perform valuable health-education functions, Moynihan et al. conclude that media stories about medications continue to be incomplete in their coverage of benefits, risks, and costs of drugs, as well as in reporting financial ties between clinical trial investigators and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
The mass media are capable of facilitating short-term, intermediate-term, and long-term effects on audiences. Short-term objectives include exposing audiences to health concepts; creating awareness and knowledge; altering outdated or incorrect knowledge; and enhancing audience recall of particular advertisements or public service announcements (PSAs), promotions, or program names. Intermediate-term objectives include all of the above, as well as changes in attitudes, behaviors, and perceptions of social norms. Finally, long-term objectives incorporate all of the aforementioned tasks, in addition to focused restructuring of perceived social norms, and maintenance of behavior change. Evidence of achieving these three tiers of objectives is useful in evaluating the effectiveness of mass media.
Mass media performs three key functions: educating, shaping public relations, and advocating for a particular policy or point of view. As education tools, media not only impart knowledge, but can...

...Functions and types of channels of distribution
* Functions; reconcile the needs of producers and consumers, improving efficiency, improving accessibility and providing specialist services
* Consumer Channels; producer direct to consumer, producer to retailer to consumer, producer to wholesaler to retailer to consumer, producer to agent to distributor to wholesaler to retailer to consumer
* Industrial Channels; producer to industrial customers, producer to agent to industrial customer, producer to distributor to industrial customer, producer to agent to distributor to industrial customer
* Service Channels; service provider to consumer/ industrial customer, service provider to agent to consumer or industrial customer
Determine channel strategy
* Making decisions concerning the selection of the most effective distribution channel, most appropriate level of distribution intensity and the correct degree of channel integration
3 components of channel strategy; channel selection, intensity and integration
* Channel selection is influenced by;
Market factors; buyer behaviour, ability to meet buyer needs, the willingness of channel intermediaries to market a product, the profit margins required by distributors and agents compared with the costs of direct distribution and the location and geographic concentration of customers
Producer factors; lack of resources, the width and depth of the product mix offered...

...Types of Nonverbal Communication and their functions
A large percentage of meanings, approximately 65% of all communications, we derive from interactions is derived from the nonverbal cues that the other person gives. , Nonverbal communication is defined as messages expressed through symbols instead of words. It is non-linguistic. Nonverbal communications include gestures, eye contact, voice, touch, smell, facial expressions, proxemics, time and artifactics.
Although there are many nonverbal cues, we are going to focus on the following five cues, facial expressions, gestures, eye contact, touch and voice, with examples, in this essay. And before we end, we will discuss how these nonverbal cues may transmit different meanings in different context.
Our face expresses a thousand emotions and it is one of the most powerful ways of expressing nonverbal communication. It is a canvas, where emotions are drawn vividly, erased and, redrawn with another emotion instantly. A true emotion can be differentiated from a fake emotion just by the looks of our expressions. More often than not, one can tell how the person feels before even a word is said.
While nonverbal communication can vary dramatically between different cultures, the facial expressions for happiness, sadness, anger and fear are similar throughout the world. Pictures 1.1 to 1.3 show a form teacher having a chat with one of his pupils outside their classroom.
In Picture 1.1, the...

...ROLES, DUTIES, AND FUNCTIONS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF PSYCHOLOGISTS
What Do Psychologists Do?
Psychologists study mental processes and human behavior by observing, interpreting, and recording how people and other animals relate to one another and the environment. To do this, psychologists often look for patterns that will help them understand and predict behavior using scientific methods, principles, or procedures to test their ideas. Through such research studies, psychologists have learned much that can help increase understanding between individuals, groups, organizations, institutions, nations, and cultures.
Like other social scientists, psychologists formulate theories, or hypotheses, which are possible explanations for what they observe. But unlike other social science disciplines, psychologists often concentrate on individual behavior and, specifically, in the beliefs and feelings that influence a person’s actions.
Research methods vary with the topic which they study, but by and large, the chief techniques used are observation, assessment, and experimentation. Psychologists sometimes gather information and evaluate behavior through controlled laboratory experiments, hypnosis, biofeedback, psychoanalysis, or psychotherapy, or by administering personality, performance, aptitude, or intelligence tests. Other methods include interviews, questionnaires, clinical studies, surveys, and observation—looking for cause-and-effect relationships...
