Function are merely used to denote the relationship between variables. This is symbolized as y = f(x) where f denotes the
rule by which y varies with x. Here x is called independent variable and y dependent variable
Graphical representation of function :
For example, for plotting the function y = x
2
,
we first decide on the value of x for which we need to plot the graph.
Thus we can take x = 0 and get y = 0 (means the point (0,0) is on the graph)
Then for x = 1, y =1; for x = 2, y = 4; for x = 3, y = 9 and for x = 1, y = 1; for x = 2, y = 4 and so on.
Even and odd functions.
Even function
If f(x) = f ( x) then it is an even function for eg. y = x
2
; y = x
4
, y = x

Graph of even function is symmetrical about y axis.
Odd Function
If f(x) = f (x) then it is a odd function.

Greatest integer function:
It is denoted by y = f(x) = [x]
It denotes the largest integer less then or equal to x.
For eg. [4.4] = [4.8] = [4.999] = 4
[ 0.7] = 1
Modulus function:
Modulus function of x is denoted as x and defined over R, the real set.
The Function defined by f(x) = x when x < 0 and f(x) = x if x >0
Here domain of f = R, Range of f = set of all non negative real numbers.
Exponential function:
A function f (x) = b
x
where
x R
and b > 0 is said to be an exponential function. Domain of f = R and range = set of all positive
real numbers.
Inverse of a function:
Suppose a function be y = f (x)
Now for every value of x we have different value of y. But in certain function such as y = x
2
we have same value of
y i.e. = 9 for different value of x i.e 3, 3. So inverse of these function cannot be found.
So for a function y = f(x), to find a inverse of it, we have to get only one value of y for corresponding value of x. The graphs
of two inverse function are symmetrical about the line y = x (which is the bisector of first and third quadrants).
How to find inverse of a function ?
For eg. f(x)

then let y

Example:
What is the minimum value of the expression x
2
+ 6x + 4
?
Let f (x) = x
2
+ 6x + 5
Differentiate this function with respect to x.
f (x) = 2x + 6
Now equate f (x) to 0
2x + 6 = 0
x = 3
Differentiate again f (x)
So f (x) = 2 (+ ve)
Since f (x) gives + ve value it is is a minima point and finally by substituting the value of x in f(x), we get the maximum or
minimum value of f (x).

Clearly, the maximum value occurs when x + 5 = 6 2x,

f(x) = (x + 5), continuously reduces as x reduces
For

Clearly g(f(x)) reduces as x increases

Sol:
f(x) = sing 3x
f(x) = 3 cos 3x
Now, 0 < x < / 2 0 < 3x < 3 / 2 .
Since cosine function is positive in first quadrant and negative in the second and third quadrants. Therefore, we consider the
following cases.

When 0 < 3x < / 2

So, 5 is the maximum value of f(x).
Now,
f(x) =

x 1 + 5 = 5
x 1 = 0
x = 1.
Thus, f(x) attains the maximum value 5 at x = 1.
Since f(x) can be made as small as we please Therefore the minimum value of f(x) does not exist (see Fig.).
(iii) We have,
f(x) = sin 3x + 4 for all x R
Now, 1 sin 3x 1 for all x R
1 + 4 sin 3x + 4 1 + 4 for all x R
3 sin 3x + 4 5 for all x R
3 f(x) 5 for all x R .
Thus, the maximum value of f(x) is 5 and the minimum value is 3.
Now, f(x) = 5
sin 3x + 4 = 5 sin 3x = 1 3x =

x =

.
Chapter 6  Functions  BMM10233  113 of 204
So, f(x) attains its maximum value 5 at x =

.
Also, f(x) = 3 sin 3x + 4 = 3 sin 3x = 1
3x =

x =

so, f(x) attains the minimum value 3 at x =

(x 2) (x 1) + is always positive. So, sign of f(x) depends upon the sign of (x 2) (7x 2) . The changes in signs
of f(x) as x increases through

Clearly, f(x) changes its sign from positive to negative as increases through
2
7
So, x =
2
7
is a point of local maximum.
We observe that f(x) changes is sign from negative to positive as x increases through 2.
So x = 2 is a point of local minimum
There is no change in the sign of f(x) as increases through 1.
So, x = 1 is a point of inflection.
