### Functions: Domain and range

### Function rule

We have just seen that a function can have a corresponding formula. From now on we will also give functions a name. This can be convenient if we are dealing with multiple functions. It helps us in easily identifying which function we mean.

#f(-3)=# #28#

After all, to calculate #f(-3)#, we substitute #x=-3# in the function.

We then get: \[f(-3)=-\left(-3\right)^3+2\cdot \left(-3\right)^2+5\cdot \left(-3\right)- 2=28\]

Hence, #f(-3)=28#.
