What is xED(f)*backwards E* f(x)=6 mean?

\(xED(f)*\ni* f(x)=6\)

\(\ni \text{ means owns, or has member} \)

I think this is what you are describing ?? but I don't know what it means.

Might be:

or:

if D stands for domain, this could mean something like: "the set of x's belonging to the domain of the function f implies that there is an f(x) equal to 6".

Thanks Alan, but could you please expand upon the meaning of this. Or give an example maybe.

This is just an if/then that applies to a specific function f, isn't it?

I really do not understand well at all :(

\(x\in D(f) \cdot \ni\cdot f(x)=6\)

Well, I'm not sure I understand it myself!

The first part says x is a member of D(f), though we're not told what D(f) means. I guessed it means the Domain of a function f.

The backward, upper case E, means "there exists", so I simply guessed the whole thing means: if x is the set of variables in the domain of f there exists a specific value of x such that f(x) equals 6.

Still doesn't make a lot of sense though!!
