Now you know more than one way to write a function. Explain the difference between working with y = 2x+4 and (f)x = 2x+4 . What are the advantages of each type of notation? Which would be preferred and why?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It primarily depends on the variables used in the function. Typically, it is understood that y is a function of x. Thus, it might seem redundant to write y(x)=2x+4. In a situation where the dependencies of a function are not understood, it is best to demonstrate them by specifically noting them in the function variable. For example, suppose that x is a function of another variable, t. In this case, I would write y(x(t))=2x+4, as t's dependency on x would otherwise be unknown. Hope this helps.
