Function 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.


How do we subtract functions?

We just subtract functions like how we subtract the variables, the constants, and the coefficients. For example, we are asked to subtract 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)
= 36x + 3 – 2x – 5
f(x) – g(x) = 34x – 2
