Functions
Functions represent relationships between variables. They take an input variable, manipulate it in some way and produce an output variable.

The Input(X) can also be called: domain, domain elements, independent variable or argument.
The output(x+4) can also be called: range, image, range elements, dependent variables or value of function.
The relationship between (X) and x + 4 is F
Taking f(x) = x + 4 into ICE would look like the image below if f(x) = y.
Taking f(x) = x + 4 into ICE would look like the image below if f(x) = y.

When I apply the function to the grid pointcloud it looks like the image below. Note how it added the global value of X not the local value. Then the + 4 giving us a graph that increases linearly in space. *You can see the global coordinate in the image below*
