Solutions

Chapter 2.1, Problem 17E
To determine

To evaluate f(x)=x26 at a number, we substitute the number for x in the definition of f(x) .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 17E

The given function of the values f(3)=3,f(3)=3,f(0)=6,f(12)=234,f(10)=94

Explanation of Solution

Given information: consider the function f(x)=x26

Calculation:

Evaluate the values of the function f(x)=x26 for the given values of the variable x

Plug the value x=3, in the function f(x)=x26 then we get the value of f(3).

  f(3)=(3)26f(3)=96f(3)=3 Put x=3

Add 9 and 6

Plug the value x=3, in the function f(x)=x26 then we get the value of f(3).

   f( 3 )= ( 3 ) 2 6 f( 3 )=96 f( 3 )=3

Put x=3

Add 9 and 6

Plug the value x=0, in the function f(x)=x26 then we get the value of f(0).

  f(0)=(0)26f(0)=06f(0)=6

Put x=0

Add 0 and 6

Plug the value x=12, in the function f(x)=x26 then we get the value of f(12).

   f( 1 2 )= ( 1 2 ) 2 6 f( 1 2 )= 1 4 6 f( 1 2 )= 23 4

Put x=12

Add 12 and 6

Plug the value x=10, in the function f(x)=x26 then we get the value of f(10).

  f(10)=(10)26f(10)=1006f(10)=94

Put x=10

Add 100 and 6

Thus, the given function of the values f(3)=3,f(3)=3,f(0)=6,f(12)=234,f(10)=94
