    A function, in mathematics, associates one quantity, the argument of the function, also known as the input, with another quantity, the value of the function, also known as the output. A function assigns exactly one output to each input. The argument and the value may be real numbers, but they can also be elements from any given set. An example of a function is f(x) = 2x, a function which associates with every number the number twice as large. Thus 5 is associated with 10, and this is written f(5) = 10.

    Any processing of numbers that has a pattern is represented as a function like addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, combination of these etc. It is like finding patterns in number processing.
