what kind of graphs?
function f(x) to find each value
I am in algebra 1. Can anyone give me any ideas to help me learn this stuff. Teacher and tutor not helping much.
Given f(x)=2x+2, find f(2) so you replace the x with the 2, f(2)=2(2)+2, which is f(2)=6
if they say find f(5) then the answer would be f(5)=12
I need you to help me Melissa. Wish I can show you my homework
How is f(1) =0 I am really confused
what's the formula given? f(x)=?
It shows a graph that I wish I could send photo of to you on here
Which problem specifically?
which problem?
I don't know any to be honest. But whatever you can help me with for I can practice will help
I got it. sorry, was out and about. I'll look at it now.
Thank you. I appreciate it because my teacher assumes I know this. My teacher before him never went over this and several other things.
I just responded.
