I can't figure our how they got the answer to this question:
Use the following function to find f(2)? f(x)=x(squared)3
This is how I am solving the problem:
f(x)=x(squared) 3
f(2)=(2)squared 3
f(2)=43
f(2)=1
The correct answer is 2 and I don;t know why.

You are right, the answer is 1
You should have enough faith and trust in your own math ability to say "the book is wrong" on this one.
