# Evaluating Functions

In three sentences or less, describe how we evaluate a function.

A brief definition of a straight line graph is a linear function of the form y = mx + c, where c and m are constants. Although you do not actually see the function written out, many professions use a straight line graph.

Name one profession that use a straight line graph and tell how it is used.

f(7) = 10x + 5x - 4

f(3a) = 2(3a) -2(3a) + 4

y = 3x + 1

4x + 2y = 16

Where x is 2

f(x) = xÂ² - 2

Where x is 6

f(x) = 2x-10

F(x)=5(x)+5-10

F(6)

F(9)

Create an equation of a nonlinear function and provide two inputs to be evaluated.
