# Function Table

## Topic

Functions and Relations

## Definition

A function table is a table that lists input values and their corresponding output values for a given function.

## Description

Function tables are useful tools in mathematics for organizing and analyzing the relationship between inputs and outputs of a function. They help in visualizing how a function behaves and in identifying patterns. For example, a function table for

f(x) = 2x + 1

might list input values 1, 2, 3 and their corresponding outputs 3, 5, 7. Function tables are used in various fields, including science and engineering, to model and predict outcomes based on given data. Understanding function tables is essential for interpreting and solving mathematical problems and for applying functions to real-world situations.
