27. h(207.32)
28. h(39.5)
29. k(3,185)
30. k( 13.843)

Answers

1. y(3) = 17, so 3 relates to 17
2. V(4) = 64
3. g(4) = 9, so 4 relates to 9
4. Because the variable x doesn't appear in the formula, there is no place to plug in x = 17. Thus, f(17) = 10.
5. s(–1) = 80
6. C(2.7) = 5.4π
7. k(2) = –9
8. –1 relates to q( –1) = 0
9.
10. , so p relates
11. h(10) = √34, so h takes 10 to √34
12. h(–7) = –1
13.
14. , so k takes 3 to
15. x ≠ –5
16. the domain of g consists of all real numbers, R
17. x ≥ –3
18.
19. x ≠ –2 and x ≠ –4
20. x ≤ 4
21. x ≥ –5, except x ≠ 2 and x ≠ –2
22.
23. x ≤ 3
24. x ≤ 2, except x ≠ 0,1,–5
25. While any number can be plugged into , we must consider the fact that x represents the base and height of a triangle. This means that x must be a positive amount. Thus, the domain of this function consists of all positive lengths x > 0.
26. The domain of r consists of all amounts of time t > 0. Negative amounts of time are impossible.
27. h(207.32) = 3
28. h(39.5) = 2
29. k(3,185) = 8,185
30. k(l3.843) = 18.848
