Suppose the polynomial function below represents the power generated by a wind turbine, where x represents the wind speed in meters per second and y represents the kilowatts generated. Interpret ƒ(10). ƒ(x) = 0.08x3 + x2 + x + 0.26

    multiply 64 by 8 to get 8^3, and then add all of them together

    Just plug in 10 for every x. Ex. 0.08(10)......... That will give you kilowatts generated.

    I hate essay questions. -_- But, I'm assuming they are asking to explain in complete sentences how to solve the function. I would suggest: First, I just plug in 10 for every x, since it's a function. Then I treat the function like it's an equation. <Here you can explain more in to detail about what steps you did when solving>.
