Section 3.2 The Graph of a Function 301 10. (a) f (0) = 0 since (0,0) is on the graph. f (6) = 0 since (6,0) is on the graph. (b) f (2) = - 2 since (2, - 2) is on the graph. f ( - 2) = 1 since ( - 2,1) is on the graph. (c) f (3) is negative since f (3) ≈ - 1. (d) f ( - 1) is positive since f ( - 1) ≈ - 0.4. (e) f ( x ) = 0 when x = 0, x = 4, and x = 6. (f) f ( x ) < 0 when 0 < x < 4. (g) The domain of f is x - 4 x 6 { } or - 4,6 [ ] (h) The range of f is y - 2 y 3 { } or - 2, 3 [ ] (i) The x -intercepts are (0, 0), (4, 0), and (6, 0). (j) The y -intercept is (0, 0). (k) The line y =- 1 intersects the graph 2 times. (l) The line x = 1 intersects the graph 1 time. (m) f ( x ) = 3 when x = 5. (n) f ( x ) = - 2 when x = 2. 11. Not a function since vertical lines will intersect the graph in more than one point. 12. Function (a) Domain: x x is any real number { } ; Range: y y 0 { } (b) intercepts: (0,1) 13. Function (a) Domain: x -π≤ x ≤π { } ; Range: y - 1 y 1 { } (b) intercepts: - π 2 ,0 , π 2 ,0 , (0,1)
