# Value (mathematics)

Jump to: navigation, search

In mathematics, value may refer to several, strongly related notions:

For example, if the function $f$ is defined by $f(x) = 2x^2-3x+1$, then, given the value 3 to the variable x yields the function value 10 (since indeed 2 · 32 – 3 · 3 + 1 = 10). This is denoted $f(3)=10.$
