What is the function?

1)Function: a value of one variable
quantity, which we may call y,
depends on the value of another
variable quantity, which we may
call x. We say that

“y is a function of x”

Dependent
variable

y = f (x)

Independent
variable

A function of a variable x is a rule that describes
how a value of the variable x is manipulated to
2) P = f (h)
generate a value of the variable y. The rule is
3) A= f (r)
often expressed in the form of an equation
4) P = f (V, I). y = f(x) with the proviso that “for any single input x there is just one output y” – the function
is said to be single valued.

1) T = f (H)

What is the function?
2) Domain: All the input numbers x that a
function can process are collectively called
the function’s DOMAIN.

Dr. Abdulkareem Sh. Mahdi

September 6, 2014

Examples: What is the domain of the following functions?

1) y = x,

2) y = ln x,

3) R = 1/x

4) C = e-t

5) y = √x,

6) z = sin (x)

3) Range: The complete collection of numbers y
that correspond to the numbers in the
domain is called the RANGE.

Dr. Abdulkareem Sh. Mahdi

What is the function?

Examples: What is the range of the following functions?
1- y = x,

2- y = ln x,

3- R = 1/x

4- C = e-t

5- y = √x,

6- z = sin (x)
