Functions

o This symbol represents the set of all real numbers
o Written as letter R with a line cutting through it vertically
 
o Means that x is in the set R (R is a real number)
o This new symbol denotes that x belongs to (or is in, or an element of) R
Intervals
Open Interval
o (-3, 5) = this states that x is a value from -3 to 5;     
Closed Interval
o [-3, 5] = this states that x is a value from -3 to 5 including 3 and 5;  
 
Hybrids
o (-3, 5]
Means that     
o [-3, 5)
Means that     
Joining Intervals
o 
This union symbol indicates a joining
Such that      or     
Domain and Range
Input Output
o With being the function
o Input referring to the domain
o Output referring to the range
A function can be thought of as a processor
o (has both an input and an output)
Domain
o Is typically given the notation
o Refers to the set of all sensible inputs for the function given
o Example:
In this example, the domain cannot be negative, as it would yield an

o The collection of possible outcomes
Found by plugging in the domain to the function
Means that of in which has to be within the domain given

Domain is in two parts, and if it doesn’t fall into the first category, it falls into the
other
Symmetry
Even functions are functions such that  
o These are symmetric with respect to the y-axis
o
Odd functions are functions such that 
o These are symmetric with respect to the origin
