Get the Math and Points! Domain and Range (Which comes 1st in the alphabet?)

CC Alg I Jan 2018 12
Domain means x values and Range means y. 
D comes before R in the alphabet and x is before y.
This problem gives us x values so use them to find y.
f(x) = 2x^2 – 8
f(-2) = 2(-2)^2 – 8 = 2(4) – 8 = 0  (This narrows it down to answers (3) or (4)!)
f(3) = 2(3)^2 – 8 = 2(9) – 8 = 10 (This makes the answer jump out at ya!)
f(5) = 2(5)^2 – 8 = 2(25) – 8 = 42
Can also use the table from the TI-84 🙂
