# Suppose f(x) = -3x + 2, how do you find the value for f(1/3)?

May 30, 2017

$f \left(\frac{1}{3}\right) = 1$

#### Explanation:

$f \left(\frac{1}{3}\right)$ simply means evaluate the function at $x = \frac{1}{3}$. So, all we need to do is plug $\frac{1}{3}$ into the equation:

$f \left(\frac{1}{3}\right) = - 3 \left(\frac{1}{3}\right) + 2$

$f \left(\frac{1}{3}\right) = - 1 + 2$

$f \left(\frac{1}{3}\right) = 1$
