The rule that connects s and A is given by the equation A ෇ s 2. With each positive number s there is associated one value of A, and we can say that A is a function of s. B. The human population of the world P depends on the time t. The table gives estimates of the world population for certain years. For instance, when t ෇ 1950, P Ϸ 2,560,000,000. But for each value of the time t there is a corresponding value of P, and we say that P is a function of t. C. The cost C of mailing an envelope depends on its weight w.
