why might function notation be important? the reasons notation is used?
Once you get out of three dimensional functions, it is hard to write it any other way. Example:
f(x,y,z,t, u, v)=2x +y*e^{t} + uv 3zuv^{2}

to rent a dvd a customer must pay $3.99 plus $0.99 for every day that it is late, write a rule in function notation for this situation?
f(x)=3.99+0.99x

Property of logarithms
Using property of logarithms, how do I prove derivative of ln(kx) is 1/x First observe that ln(kx) = ln(k) + ln(x) then take derivatives. The ln(k) is simply a constant so it goes away. You could also derive it as d/dx ln(kx) = 1/kx …

Simplify: 4^(1/2) 4 1/2 = 1/4 1/2 = 1/2. check my work. On exponents, negative means reciprocal. 4 (1/2) means the same as 1/4 (1/2) which is the same as 1/squareroot(4) so the answer is 1^4 no, of course not. The square root of …
