Q6Which of the following tables represents the function f(x) = 23x - 1, for x = 0, 3, 6, 9 and 12 as domain? A. Table 3
B. Table 2
C. Table 1
D. Table 4

Step: 1
f(x) = 23 x - 1
[Given function.]
Step: 2
For x = 0, f(0) = 23 (0) - 1 = 0 - 1 = - 1
[Substitute the domain values in the function.]
Step: 3
For x = 3, f(3) = 23 (3) - 1 = 2 - 1 = 1
Step: 4
For x = 6, f(6) = 23 (6) - 1 = 4 - 1 = 3
Step: 5
For x = 9, f(9) = 23 (9) - 1 = 6 - 1 = 5
Step: 6
For x = 12, f(12) = 23 (12) - 1 = 8 - 1 = 7
Step: 7
The values of x and f(x) can be tabulated as shown in table 1.
Step: 8
Therefore, Table 1 describes the given function.
Correct Answer is :   Table 1
Q7Which of the function tables represents the function f(x) = 9x - 11, for x = -1, 1, 2, 3 and 5 as domain ? A. Table 1
B. Table 3
C. Table 4
D. Table 2

Step: 1
f(x) = 9x - 11
[Given function.]
Step: 2
For x = -1, f( - 1) = 9 (- 1) - 11 = - 9 - 11 = - 20
[Substitute the domain values in the function.]
Step: 3
For x = 1, f (1) = 9(1) - 11 = 9 - 11 = - 2
Step: 4
For x = 2, f (2) = 9(2) - 11 = 18 - 11 = 7
Step: 5
For x = 3, f (3) = 9(3) - 11 = 27 - 11 = 16
Step: 6
For x = 5, f (5) = 9(5) - 11 = 45 - 11 = 34
Step: 7
The values of x and f(x) can be tabulated as shown in Table 2.
Step: 8
Therefore, Table 2 describes the given function.
Correct Answer is :   Table 2

B. Table 1
C. Table 4
D. Table 3

Step: 1
f(x) = 3x - 10
[Given function]

[Substitute the domain values in the function.]
Step: 3
For x = 5, f(5) = 3(5) - 10 = 15 - 10 = 5
Step: 4
For x = 10, f(10) = 3(10) - 10 = 30 - 10 = 20
Step: 5
For x = 15, f(15) = 3(15) - 10 = 45 - 10 = 35
Step: 6
For x = 20, f(20) = 3(20) - 10 = 60 - 10 = 50
Step: 7
The values of x and f(x) can be tabulated as shown in table 4.
Step: 8
therefore, Table 4 describes the given function.
Correct Answer is :   Table 4
Q9Which of the function tables represents the function f(x) = 5 - 11x, for x = - 2, 0, 2, 4 and 6 as domain? A. Table 3
B. Table 1
C. Table 2
D. Table 4

Step: 1
f(x) = 5 - 11x
[Given function]
