Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0#1. linear, i.e. f(x) = mx+b #2. rational, i.e. f(x) = 1/x #3. quadratic, i.e. f(x) = ax\(^2\)+bx+c #4. cubic, i.e. f(x) = x\(^3\) #5. radical, i.e. f(x) = \(\sqrt{\text{x}}\) #6. absolute value, i.e. f(x) = x You are correct and now you have a handy little picture guide :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In fact I think the only ones you're really missing from this little picture guide are the ones that involve trig functions, logarithms, and higher polynomials ^_^ Hopefully at the level of math you're at you won't be seeing those just yet, until you get this stuff down. This part is just like memorizing shapes.
