science space and astronomy# How families of functions parameters and the descriptions of graphs are related?

Last Updated: 10th January, 2020

**Function families**are groups of

**functions**with similarities that make them easier to

**graph**when you are familiar with the

**parent function**, the most basic example of the form. A

**parameter**is a variable in a general equation that takes on a specific value in order to create a specific equation.

Consequently, what do graphs within a family of functions have in common?

A **family of functions** is a set of **functions** whose equations **have** a similar form. The “parent” of the **family** is the equation in the **family** with the simplest form. For example, y = x^{2} is a parent to other **functions**, such as y = 2x^{2} - 5x + 3.

Likewise, what are the 4 types of functions? **There can be 4 different types of user-defined functions, they are:**

- Function with no arguments and no return value.
- Function with no arguments and a return value.
- Function with arguments and no return value.
- Function with arguments and a return value.

Subsequently, question is, what are the 4 parent functions?

These elementary **functions** include rational **functions**, exponential **functions**, basic polynomials, absolute values and the square root **function**.

What are the 6 functions of the family?

- Addition of New Members. • Families have children through birth, adoption, and may also use the help of fertility clinics, etc.
- Physical Care of Members. •
- Socialization of Children. •
- Social Control of Members. •
- Affective Nurturance- Maintaining Morale of Members. •
- Producing and Consuming Goods and Services. •
