Solutions

Chapter 2, Problem 9RE
To determine

Tocalculate: f(0), f(2), f(2), f(a), f(a), f(x+1), f(2x) and 2f(x)2.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 9RE

The answer is f (0) = 6, f (2) = 2, f (2) = 18,

  f (a) = a24a + 6,

  f (a) = a2+4a+6,

  f(x+1)=x22x+3,

  f(2x)=4x28x+6,

  2f(x)2=2x28x+10.

Explanation of Solution

Given information : The equation of f(x) is given = f(x)=x24x+6 .

Formula used : To find f (a) put x=a in the equation of f(x).

Calculation :

The equation of f (x) = x24x+6 .

   f(0)= (0) 2 4(0)+6f(0)=00+6f(0)=6

   f(2)= (2) 2 4(2)+6f(2)=48+6f(2)=2

   f(2)= (2) 2 4(2)+6f(2)=4+8+6f(2)=18

   f(a)= (a) 2 4(a)+6f(a)=a24a+6

   f(a)= (a) 2 4(a)+6f(a)=a2+4a+6

   f(x+1)= (x+1) 2 4(x+1)+6f(x+1)=x2+2x+14x4+6f(x+1)=x22x+3

   f(2x)= (2x) 2 4(2x)+6f(2x)=4x28x+6

   2f(x)2=2( x 2 4x+6)22f(x)2=2x28x+1222f(x)2=2x28x+10
