Function Notation Test

When we work with functions, we have specific notation that applies. Generally instead of y, we will now see f(x), g(x), or h(x). When we have a function, we can use the notation to ask for the functions value, given a certain input. If we see f(2), this means replace the independent variable with 2 and evaluate.

Test Objectives:

•Demonstrate the ability to write a function using function notation

•Demonstrate an understanding of f(a), where a is a real number

•Demonstrate an understanding of f(x + a), where a is a real number
