(+) 0 (−) 0 (+) √ √ 33 −3 3 y = f (x) and y = g (x) As a point of interest, if we take a closer look at the graphs of f and g near x = 0 with the axes off, we see that despite the fact they both involve cube roots, they exhibit different behavior near x = 0. The graph of f has a sharp turn, or cusp, while g does not.11 10 11 Or at least confirm to several decimal places Again, we introduced this feature on page 185 as a feature which makes the graph of a function ‘not smooth’. 318 Further Topics in Functions y = f (x) near x = 0 y = g (x) near x = 0 2. To solve 3(2 − x)1/3 ≤ x(2 − x)−2/3 , we gather all the nonzero terms on one side and obtain 3(2 − x)1/3 − x(2 − x)−2/3 ≤ 0. We set r(x) = 3(2 − x)1/3 − x(2 − x)−2/3 . As in number 1, the denominators of the rational exponents are odd, which means there are...
