Unformatted text preview: g and f in the last example, we notice that to obtain the graph of f from the graph of g , we reflect a portion of the graph of g about the x-axis. We can see this analytically by substituting g (x) = x2 − x − 6 into the formula for f (x) and calling to mind Theorem 1.4 from Section 1.8. f (x) = −g (x), if g (x) < 0 g (x), if g (x) ≥ 0 The function f is defined so that when g (x) is negative (i.e., when its graph is below the x-axis), the graph of f is its refection across the x-axis. This is a general template to graph functions of the form f (x) = |g (x)|. From this perspective, the graph of f (x) = |x| can be obtained by reflection the portion of the line g (x) = x which is below the x-axis back above the x-axis creating the characteristic ‘∨’ shape. 148 2.3.1 Linear and Quadratic Functions Exercises 1. Graph each of the following quadratic functions. Find the x- and y -intercepts of each graph, if any exist. If it is given in the general form, convert it into standard form. Find the domain...

    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.
