Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have no idea I am given what is typed above with the statement at the begining of the assignment that say simplify or solve...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so does it seem like they want you to find what f(0) and f(2) are?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that would be my guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you familiar with what a function is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i probably would be but this is my first math class in almost 9 years

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically a function is a machine that you feed an xvalue, and it spits out a yvalue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so whatever number you put into the function machine, it does what it does and you get some output

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anyways, it is asking you to feed 0 and 2 into the function and see what comes out. so you need to plug those values in for x and compute the result

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so instead of it saying 3x^2 I should put the 0 where that x is so it would read (3)(0)^2 ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, to find f(0), put a 0 wherever you see an x and keep everything else the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my answers would be 5 and 33?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 looks right, but how did you get 33?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(3(2))^{2} 4(2) +5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are those outer parentheses in the first part in the original equation, or did you add them?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0with a question like this you need to make sure to just plug in the number to the exact equation and not change it in any way. do you see why the extra parentheses make a difference?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have to go in a second, but the 3 shouldn't be squared, the exponent only applies to x
