Operations/functions defining algebraic/arithmetic expressions


!
This post is a part of the Special Questions Directory focusing on Quant topics traditionally neglected and not covered by conventional sources but still tested on the GMAT. Many of these are above average difficulty questions

This type of question defines some function and asks to find the value of some expression involving that function. For example, "If the operation @ is defined by \(x@y=\sqrt{xy}\) for all positive numbers x and y, then (5@45)@60 ="

Hi,

is there somewhere a theory to this? I do not understand how to approach this type of questions.
