4.6: Function Machines 2
Can you fill in the missing numbers in the table below? In this concept, we will learn how to follow two-part rules in order to complete function tables.
Guidance
In order to complete function tables like the one above, we can use the problem solving steps to help.
- First, describe what you see in the table.
- Second, identify what your job is. In these problems, your job will be to complete the table.
- Third, make a plan . In these problems, your plan should be to use the rules to help you to complete the table.
- Fourth, solve . In these problems you will solve by completing the table.
- Fifth, check . In these problems you will check by verifying that the addition and subtraction from the rules leads to the numbers in the out column of the table.

Vocabulary
A function is an example of a rule that states a relationship between two quantities. In this concept, our rule told us how to go from the in number to the out-number in each table. To add means to combine or to put together. To subtract means to take away. In this concept, our rules told us to add and subtract.
