1 MTH 06 LECTURE NOTES (Ojakian) Topic 2: Functions OUTLINE (References: Iyer Textbook  pages 4,6,17,18,40,79,80,81,82,103,104,109,110) 1. Definition of Function and Function Notation 2. Domain and Range of Function 3. Special Functions: (a) Polynomial (b) Rational (c) Radicals and rational exponents (d) Exponential and Logarithmic 4. Inverse Functions 1. Functions Definition 1. Let D be some specified set of numbers. A function with domain D is a rule that assigns a unique value to each element of D. PROBLEM 1. For each item state whether or not it is a function. (a) Let D be the set of integers. We define a function which assigns to each integer the result of multiplying it by two and then adding one. (b) We define a function whose domain is the integers and assigns to each integer n, the value 2n + 1. (c) Let G be the function whose domain is the integers and assigns to each integer x, the value 2x + 1. (d) Let f be the function whose domain is the real numbers and assigns to each number u the value 3/u. (e) Let F be the function which assigns to each integer y, the number u such that u 2 is y. (f) Let g be the function whose domain is the positive integers and assigns the even integers to 5 and and odd integers to 2. *PROBLEM* 2. For each item state whether or not it is a function. (a) Let S be the set of positive real numbers. We define a function which assigns to each number in the domain, half its value. (b) Let f be the function which assigns the rational numbers to 1 and the integers to 1. (c) Let g be the function with domain being all real numbers, which assigns to each number its square root. 1
2 (d) Let F be the function whose domain is the negative real numbers and assigns to each number x, the number x + 3. (e) Let H be the function whose domain is all the nonzero rational numbers, and assigns to any rational number its reciprocal. Some terminology: Input: Element of Domain to which we apply the function. Value of a function on some input: The result of applying the function to an element of the domain. Output: Same as Value. Write down in a nonnumeric function. 2. Function Notation Definition 2. We can define a function using function notation by: (a) Specifying its domain, and (b) Giving the function a name (like F ), and (c) Describing the rule as follows: F (x) = [PUT RULE DESCRIPTION]. Given an element u in the domain, we write F (u) to refer to the value of F on u. PROBLEM 3. Describe the functions from Problem 1 using function notation. *PROBLEM* 4. Describe the functions from Problem 2 using function notation. 3. Function Evaluation PROBLEM 5. (a) Let f(x) = 3 + x and let the domain be all the nonnegative real numbers. Find the value f(9). Evaluate f(100). (b) Let g(x) = 3 and let the domain be all the integers larger than x Find g(16). Find g(4) (watch it!). *PROBLEM* 6. (a) Let h(y) = 10y 2 + y + 3 and let the domain be all the real numbers y 1. Find the value h( 2). Evaluate h(1). (b) Let H(x) = 10 2 x + 1 and let the domain be all the real numbers less than 9. x 10 Find H(0). Calculate H(4). Give your nonnumeric function a name and use function notation to evaluate it for some inputs. Hand this in. 2
3 4. Domain and Range Properly speaking, when a function is defined, a domain should be specified. However... Definition 3. If the rule for a function is given, but no domain is given, then it is assumed that the domain is the largest set of real numbers for which the rule makes sense. PROBLEM 7. (a) Define a function f(x) = x. What is its domain? x (b) What is the domain of the function g(x) = x 7? PROBLEM 8. (a) Define a function g(u) = 2 u. What is its domain? (b) What is the domain of the function g(x) = 3 x (x + 7)(x 5)? Definition 4. The range of a function is the set of all possible values of the function. PROBLEM 9. Find the range of each function.

(c) Consider the function g(x) = 3 x and its domain is the set { 2, 1, 0, 1, 2}. *PROBLEM* 10. Find the range of each function. (a) Consider the function f(y) = 2y + 1 where the domain is the nonnegative integers. (b) Consider the function f(u) = u.
