Functions that Describe Situations

After seeing a pattern, do you ever wonder what the rule is behind the pattern? It is the function rule. A FUNCTION RULE is a rule that assigns every input to an output which follows one rule, like a formula. 

The notation used for representing a function is \begin{align*}f\left (x \right )\end{align*}.

If a question states that creating a membership plan requires a one time transaction of $10 and a montly payment of 5$, the easy way to solve these type of questions is to create a function rule to represent the question.

Payment = (10$) +  \begin{align*}f\left (x \right )\end{align*} = 10$ + 5x

With this funtion, we are able to easily solve the questions as long as we have this simple funtion rule.
