The crux of function notation comes in problems where you're asked to interpret key features of a graph. Here we look at finding the y for a given x (presented like "find f(2)"), and finding the x for a given y (presented like "what is x when f(x) = 2" ). The domain is the set of all possible x values, which is found looking at the horizontal x values, and the range is the set of all possible y values, which is found looking at the vertical y values. We can also apply a graphing transformation to the function, eventhough we don't know it's equation: f(x) + d represents shifting the entire graph up (or down) d units.
