Identify this graph as the graph of a linear, rational, quadratic, cubic, radical, or absolute value function.
Ah, well how about I graph those and you can tell me which you can identify :-) #1 |dw:1342729299574:dw|
#2 |dw:1342729349047:dw|
#3 |dw:1342729386363:dw|
Whoaaaaa, wait. What does this have to do with my question?
#4 |dw:1342729434938:dw|
I'm going in order though your list of options, the name of the game here is to identify the shape :-)
So mine is quadratic?
#5 |dw:1342729526208:dw|
And finally... #6 |dw:1342729590894:dw|
Nooo mine is absolute value function. Right?
#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 :-)
In 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.
Got it @HayleyWhite17 ? ^_^
Yessss thank youu
