Pls i really need your help. i dont have any idea how to make a word problem for COMPOSITE FUNCTIONS. can you give a sample? THANKS GOD BLESS..
Suppose the temperature recorded by a weather balloon is a function of height, T= f(h) (if you want a specific function, just put in any function you like for f), and that the height of the balloon is a function of time, h= g(t). Then the temperature, as a function of time, it the composite function, .
Now, do you understand what that means? That is far more important than just giving an answer.
Hello, jilian!
Make a word problem for composite functions. Can you give a sample?
I like HallsofIvy's example!
I think of composite functions as "machines" (number crunchers) in a row.
The first is a machine that converts time into height
. .
The second is a machine that converts height into temperature
. .
Placing the machines in sequence, we have:
. .
If this were an "assrmbly line" in our "factory",
. . it would be practical and economical to have one machine to do the job.
. .
This would convert time directly to temperature .
