In an F of X problem all you do is evaluate the problem replacing the x with the number inside of the parenthesis. So, for this it would be f(2)=2(2) + 1

It is easy and sometimes fun when you get the hang of it. You are in algebra one I can tell but when you get into algebra two you will start graphing them which is much more difficult.
