  • 2.4 Operations with Functions

    Objectives: Perform operations with functions to write new functionsFind the composition of two functionsStandard: 2.8.11.S. Analyze properties and relationships of functions

  • I. Operations With FunctionsFor all functions f and g:

    Sum (f + g)(x) = f(x) + g(x)

    Difference (f g)(x) = f(x) g(x)

    Product (f g)(x) = f(x) g(x)

    Quotient ( )(x) = , where g(x) 0

  • Example

  • Solve the following:

  • ExampleState any domain restrictions.

  • Example 4

  • Composition of FunctionsLet f and g be functions of x.

    The composition of f and g, denoted f g, is defined by f(g(x)).

    The domain of y = f(g(x)) is the set of domain values of g whose range values are the domain of f. The function f g is called the composite function of f with g.

  • Example

  • Example 2

  • Example 4

  • Example 5A local computer store is offering a $40.00 rebate along with a 20% discount. Let x represent the original price of an item in the store.a. Write the function D that represents the sale price after a 20% discount and the function R that represents the sale price after the $40 rebate.b. Find the composition functions (R D)(x) and (D R)(x), and explain what they represent.

    Since the 20% discount on the original price is the same as paying 80% of the original price, D(x) = 0.8x The rebate function is R(x) = x - 4020% discount first$40 rebate firstR(D(x)) = R(0.8x)D(R(x)) = D(x 40) = (0.8x) 40 = 0.8(x 40) = 0.8x 40 = 0.8x 32 Notice that taking the 20% discount first results in a lower sales price.

  • Writing Activities5. What is the difference between (fg)(x) and (f g)(x)? Include examples to illustrate your discussion.

    6. In general, are (f g)(x) and (g f)(x) equivalent functions? Explain.
