Topics: • More on functions defined by formulas: Difference quotients (Example 3.3) Finding domains of the four types of functions we have studied so far (Example 3.5) I strongly recommend computing the difference quotients by breaking the process down into … Continue reading
Apologies for the late post! Topics: • Functions defined by formulas and function notation • Finding domains for four different types of functions (see the MAT1375-FunctionsByFormulas-slideshow) • Finding a difference quotient step-by-step: see example 3.2(i-l) Important: is not … Continue reading
