the parentheses c Dependent variable Changes depending on the independent variable Significant digits number of digits counting from the first nonzero digit Function Composition When you replace the independent variable of a function with a different equa on a Rt1t and ArTtr2 so a function composition would be Art T1t2 Domain of a function The set of values that the independent variable can take Range of a function Set of values that the dependent variable can take Interval Notation a ab the set of all values x in interval altxltb b ab the set of all values x in interval altxltb c There are also cases of ab Discrete quantity when the problem involves whole numbers such as population of a country Continuous quantity when the problem can have decimalsfractions such as the radius or area of a circle Vertical Line Test In order to determine if a graph is a function no vertical line should pass through more than one point of the function A function assigns a single value to every number in the domain Constant Rate of Change functions where the rate of change is always the same slopes and rates are related Slope riserun or the change in Y the change in X or y2y1x2x1 Arithmetic sequence A sequence of equally spaced values able to determine from a table if a function is potentially linear X and Y are arithmetic Constant Slope Determine slope of points to determine if a function is linear f slope stays constant then it is linear Speed distance travelled time elapsed Average rate of change the same equation as slope Secant line The straight line representing the distance for a trip made at constant speed Also known as the reference line joins curve at 2 points Increasingdecreasing functions A function is increasing if the graph is rising when looked at from left to right In the same way a function is decreasing if the graph is falling Many functions can be neither or both Concave down The rate of change decreases with time which causes the graph to bend down Slope is decreasing Concave up The rate of change increases with time which causes the graph to bend up Slope is increasing Relative change absolute change initial quantity p1 pO p0 is a fraction or percentage

where cthe cost of production and qquantity independent variable based on quantity produced Total cost FV Fcq Revenue Function represents the income from the sale of q goods assuming all goods are sole It depends on price p of the goods Rqpq a Price refers to the selling price while cost refers to the cost to the producer for manufacturing the goods Profit Function the difference between the money taken in by a firm and the money going out RqCq Marginal Quantities a Marginal cost the additional cost entailed in producing one additional unit q1 units b Marginal revenue profit the additional revenue that would be obtained if q1 goods were produced c Marginal cost at production level q is 1q1cq d Marginal quantities are the slopes of the corresponding function Producers A higher selling price which means more producers means a greater supply of goods Consumers A higher selling price means less consumers spending money which results in lower demand for goods Supply Sp is an increasing function and Demand Dp is a decreasing function and represent quantities of goods a Price on vertical axis and quantity on horizontal axis Law of Supply and Demand states that in the longrun prices and quantities will go to the equilibrium Specific Tax a fixed dollar amount per product Sales Tax a fixed percentage of the purchase price Effective tax Even when the tax responsibility if on the consumerproducer both end up paying part of the tax Producers pay what they lose in revenue from having to lower prices and consumers pay the rest Monopoly If a company has no competition it is not subject to the market price so it will maximize its revenue Exponential functions PtPoat will later be written as POaquott the independent variable is in the exponent a PO initial quantity since the initial time t0 called the vertical intercept of Pt b A the base of the exponential function It is the factor of change of the function in each time step Relative Rate of
