Basic Elementary Functions Identity Function Square Function Cube Function Square Root Function Cube Root Function Absolute Value Function Example 1: Graph the following functions on the appropriate graph above. a) g(x) = x + 4 b) g(x) = x2  3 c) g(x) = (x  1)3 d) g(x) = x + 3 e) g(x) = 4 3 x 1 f) g(x) =  x 2 6 c Kendra Kilmer January 20, 2009 Transformations 1. Vertical Transformation: g(x) = f (x) + k If k > 0, f (x) will move up k units. If k < 0, f (x) will move down k units. 2. Horizontal Transformation: g(x) = f (x  h) If h > 0, f (x) will move right h units. If h < 0, f (x) will move h units to the left. 3. Reflection, expansion, and contraction g(x) = a f (x) If a > 1, f (x) will stretch/expand vertically by a factor of a. If 0 < a < 1, f (x) will shrink/contract vertically by a factor of a. If a < 0, f (x) will be reflected about the xaxis. Example 2: If g(x) = 2 f (x + 1)  3, describe how f (x) was transformed to get g(x)? 7 c Kendra Kilmer January 20, 2009 Definition: Functions whose definition involve more than one rule are called To graph, graph each rule over the appropriate portion of the domain. Example 3: Graph the following piecewise function: f (x) = x2  2 2x + 3 if x < 0 if x 0 . Example 4: A taxicab company in a certain town charges all customers a base fee of $5 per ride. They then charge an additional 50 cents per mile for the first 10 miles traveled and $1/mile for each mile over 10 miles. Write a piecewise function, C(x), for the cost of a cab ride if x represents the number of miles traveled.
