Function notation is a way to name a

function that is defined by an equation. For an equation in x

and y, the symbol f (x) replaces y and is read as "the value

of f at x" or simply as "f of x."

What is leibniz notation?

The notation of the derivative of a function f, as d(f(x)/dx or dy/dx where y=f(x) is known as the Leibnitz notation. Some books say that it is not the ratio of dy and dx, which is in fact, truly speaking, not true. The quantities dy and dx are known as the differential of y and differential of x, and their ratio in that order represents the derivative function wherever it exists. So, this notation is extremely flexible.
