What is a Function?
→ It is an expression, law, or rule that defines the relationship between a variable and another variable. One of the variables is the independent variable and one is the dependent variable.
This is an example of function:
f(x) = dependent variable
x = independent variable
What are independent and dependent variables?
It is the variable that represents a certain number. For example, x can be equal to 3, y can be equal to 4, and so on.
It is the variable that represents the value of those that is being added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided. For example, f(x) = x+3(2), g(y) = 32/y.
How do we add functions?
We just add functions like how we add the variables, the constants, and the coefficients. For example, we are asked to add the given functions:
f(x) = 36x + 3, g(x) = 2x+5
First, we must rearrange the functions:
f(x) + g(x) = (36x + 3) + (2x + 5)
We then remove the parentheses, then we arrange them according to their variable.
36x + 2x + 5 + 3
After arranging them, we can now add these!
36x + 2x + 5 + 3 = 38x + 8
We should also simplify these to their lowest terms.
38x + 8 = 19x + 4
Therefore, 19x + 4 is the final answer. It’s easy, right?
