(a)

To determine

The value of f(1) based on the following data,

 x −3 −2 −1 0 1 2 3 f(x) 1 2 4 2 −1 −0.5 0.25
Explanation

Given Information:

The provided table is,

 x −3 −2 −1 0 1 2 3 f(x) 1 2 4 2 −1 −0.5 0.25

Function is a relationship which shows how one quantity depends on another.

The function is represented by the symbol f(x) which is dependent on the independent variable x. That is, f(x) is also called the value of the function at x

(b)
