Hi,

Please find the detailed explanation of your problems attached herewith.

Given the function f described by f(x)=x+7, find each of the following.

1. f(0)= ?

For this put x =0, we will get

f(0) = 0+7 = 7

f(0) = 7

2. f (-11)=?

For this put x = -11, we will get
f(-11) = -11 + 7 = -4

f(-11) = -4

3. F(-14)=?

For this put x = -14, we will get
f(-14) = -14 + 7 = -7

f(-14) = -7

4. F(17)=?

For this put x = 17, we will get
f(17) = 17 + 7 = ...
