Power functions typically have rational exponents . A special type of power function is a root function . Examples of power functions include: f 1 ( x ) = x 2 , f 2 ( x ) = x 3/4 , f 3 ( x ) = x 0.4 , and f 4 ( x ) = 6 Rev.S08 What are Power Functions? (Cont.) ht p:/ faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. Often, the domain of a power function f is restricted to nonnegative numbers . Suppose the rational number p/q is written in lowest terms. The domain of f ( x ) = x p/q is all real numbers whenever q is odd and all nonnegative numbers whenever q is even ....
