Evaluate a linear function
To evaluate a function, or find a functional value, means to substitute a given value in the domain into the equation to find the corresponding element in the range.
Given
f(x)=x+3
, find
f(2)
Plug x=2 into the function and simplify.
f(x)
=
x+3
f(2)
=
2+3
Plug x=2
f(2)
=
5
Simplify
