science space and astronomy# What is a function family in algebra?

Last Updated: 4th February, 2020

**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.

In this way, what are the 4 functions of a family?

There are **four functions** of **family**. These **four functions** include regulation of sexual activity, socialization, reproduction, and economic and emotional security.

Additionally, what is a function in algebra? A **function** is an equation that has only one answer for y for every x. A **function** assigns exactly one output to each input of a specified type. It is common to name a **function** either f(x) or g(x) instead of y. f(2) means that we should find the value of our **function** when x equals 2.

One may also ask, 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. •

How do you graph a function?

Consider the **function** f(x) = 2 x + 1. We recognize the equation y = 2 x + 1 as the Slope-Intercept form of the equation of a line with slope 2 and y-intercept (0,1). Think of a point moving on the **graph** of f. As the point moves toward the right it rises.
