I'm given the function. 

 

\(F(-2) =\)  

 

and I have the following point's on the graph (Since Webcalc's having a problem with uploading pictures) 

 

THE FOLLWOING POINTS: (1, -2), (0. 1), (-2, 2), (-3, 0); 

 

My answer for the question was 1 but I appread incorrect my judgement was based on how all my other problem's, when they would tell what x was and ask what F(x) was so I tried the opposite for this.

 

THANKS SO MUCH GUYS FOR YOUR HELP :)

I think you are given F (-2)    in the point  (-2,2)     i.e.   '2'

Thank you, but I was curious how would one would derive the answer, as such?

Ya just have to 'derive' it from the information given and an understanding of what functions (f(x))= ....   mean unless you are actually GIVEN the function like (for example)   f(x) = x^2 +3x -1

F(-2)   actually asks..."When we put "-2" into "F".....what is the resulting y value???"

 

Look  at the points (x , y)....note that we have the point  (-2, 2)

 

This means that when we put -2  into F, we get get 2 as a result

 

So

 

F(-2)  =  2

 

 

cool cool cool

OOOOOh so basically with the given point's it's asking if X or F('x') is equal to -2, we cehck our points to see which x is equal to negative 2 then check the Y value? 

 

 

Thanks for answering this quick!

You didn't miss anything

 

F(x)  = y

So

F(-2)  =  y  ???

 

So    (x, y)  = (-2, y)    and the point with an x coordinate of -2   has a y coordinate of  2

 

So

f(-2)  = 2

 

 

cool cool cool
