But, what is your understanding of, first, what a "function"

By functions I mean like linear graphs, exponential functions, parabola, etc. When I say attributes I mean like minimum value, maximum value, y and x intercepts, vertex, domain, range, etc. What I am asking is how would this information be helpful to someone who works with graphs a lot. How would this info make their work easier and why is this important to know.

Again, I apologize for the vagueness of my initial question.

Thank you so much!

First, in one sense, none of it matters a lot, since you can just type an equation into a graphing program and get the graph with no effort.By functions I mean like linear graphs, exponential functions, parabola, etc. When I say attributes I mean like minimum value, maximum value, y and x intercepts, vertex, domain, range, etc. What I am asking is how would this information be helpful to someone who works with graphs a lot.

On the other hand, since you can do that, it

But

Ultimately, you'll notice, things about graphs matter not so much in terms of the graph itself, but in terms of the
