## Functions[edit | edit source]

### Definition[edit | edit source]

Functions are an arithmetical expression which relates 2 variables. Functions are usually denoted as

meaning for any value of there is a corresponding value where

- - independent variable.
- - dependent variable.
- - function of .

### Graphs of functions[edit | edit source]

- Straight line passing through origin point (0,0) with slope equals 1

**x**-2 -1 0 1 2 **f(x)**-4 -2 0 2 4

- Straight line passing through origin point (0,0) with slope equals 2

**x**-2 -1 0 1 2 **f(x)**-1 1 3 5 7

- Straight line with slope equals 2 has x intercept (-3/2,0) and y intercept (0,3)

## Equations[edit | edit source]

An equation is an expression of a function of a variable that has a value equal to zero

Equations can be solved to find the value of a variable that satisfies the equation. The process of finding this value is called root finding. All values of a variable that make its function equal to zero are called roots of the equation.

### Examples[edit | edit source]

- Equation .
- Root .

- is the root of the equation since substitution the value of x in the equation we have

### Types of equations[edit | edit source]

- Polynomial Equation
- Differential Equation
- Partial Differential Equation
- Linear equation
- System of linear equations
