## Quiz (1): What is this function?

For various reasons there have been no articles in recent weeks; now we are restarting on a regular basis!

A the first topic for this new season, here is a little quiz. I have a function:

- For 0 it yields 0.
- For 1 it yields 1.
- For 2 it yields 4.
- For 3 it yields 9.
- For 4 it yields 16.

The question: what is the value for 5?

Answer next Wednesday (at least it will be Wednesday in some time zone).

If you are asking like this, there is a certain chance that it is not 25.

f(x)=x² is not necessarily the most interesting, the most simple, or the one you have in mind.

I hate those IQ test questions…
