Unit 2, Activity 2, Discovery using Technology with Answers Blackline Masters, Advanced Math-PreCalculus Page 54 Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum, Revised 2008 1. Plot on the same screen the following graphs: , 2 x y = , 3 x y = y = x 4 , y = x 5 a) What points do all of the graphs have in common? All of the graphs pass through (0, 0) and (1, 1) b) Which function increases most rapidly, and which increases least rapidly, as x becomes large? y = x 5 increases most rapidly and y = x 2 increases least rapidly c) What are the main differences between the graphs of the even powers of x and the odd powers of x ? The graphs of the even powers of x are even functions; that is, they are symmetrical over the y-axis. The graphs of the odd powers of x are odd functions; that is, they are symmetrical around the origin. The end-behavior of the even powers is the same as x y x y → ∞ → ∞ → −∞ → ∞ , , and as . The same can be said for the end-behavior of the odd powers: as x y x y → ∞ → ∞ → −∞ → −∞ , , and as .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
