## Math Challenge (April 19, 2010)

Define function f by  f(x)=3-2x,

Find f(0)=___

f(1)=3-2(1)=3-2=1

and   f(2)=___

Examples:

This is simply a function f with variable x defined by x.

if I define f(x)=x, then my function is always linear, for any value of x, f(x) is equal to x on this particular case.

f(0)=0,

f(1)=1,

f(2)=2

If I define f(x)=1-x, then the function value can always be calculated by using the formula on the right hand side of the equation and plug in x.

f(0)=1-0=1,

f(1)=1-1=0

f(2)=1-2=-1

Good Luck!

If You understand, It is super easy!

Simply using the formula given to compute the value of f(x)…

Happy Monday!

## Math Challenge

How can you get 24 using only numbers 8, 8, 3, and 3?

You can use main operation signs such as +, -, x, / or addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Solution:   two solutions

#1: 24=8/(3-8/3), see, the solution used 8 twice and 3 twice.

#2: Another solution could be  24=8+(8×3!)/3, which has 8 twice and 3 twice…

#3: Thom and Vishu have their best try, I consider their efforts correct.

You turn, it is a challenge, but I am curious about who can figure it out!

Have FUN to those of YOU who are interested in learning math!
