    Well, if you have any function with y and x and you isolate y on one side: For example, \[y = 2x + 7\] The function notation will be \[f(x) = 2x + 7\] Just replacing that y with f(x) - f(x) just shows that whatever this function is for depends on x.

    The graph would represent the function - which could depict any situation. Did it have any graph associated with the problem?

    So for f(x) = 2x + 7, the function could represent anything - the cost of coffee, the weight of a balloon as it fills with liquid, the height of a helicopter, etc. The function represents a situation in which one variable - y in this case - changes as x changed, and is thus a function dependent on x. This particular function is one which, when x is zero, starts off at seven. Every time you increase x by one, y increases by two.
