It is also the case that you can substitute an expression or even another function for an independent variable. Use of a function in this capacity receives attention later on in this book. With respect to the use of an expression, you can substitute Domains and Functions expressions for the independent variable. For example, you can equate x with an expression that reads x þ 2. You then end up with this equation: bþ2¼x fb j b 2 Rg f (x) ¼ 3x þ 2 f (b þ 2) ¼ 3(b þ 2) þ 2 ¼ 3b þ 6 þ 2 ¼ 3b þ 8 In each instance, Df consists of the set of all real numbers.
You assign the result of the function to the tonsOfCO2 identiﬁer. To make this value available to users of the function, you use the return keyword to return the value you have assigned to tonsOfCO2. Implementing the method using a local variable and several lines of code makes the activity of implementing the function clearer, but it is generally preferable to reduce the amount of code as much as possible. 67 * tonsOfC; } In this implementation, you supply the argument provided by the tonsOfC argument directly to the statement in which you implement the function.
Since the method has no arguments, you include nothing within the parentheses. To show that the call to the function is a statement, you close the line with a semicolon. At comment #2, you deﬁne the performCCalculation() method. This method creates a table of values. It also calls another, specialized method, calculateCO2Added(). To call the calculateCO2Added() method, you must create an instance of the class in which it is deﬁned. In the lines trailing comment #3, you accomplish this task. You create a local instance of the class.
