(a) y = 3 x3/2 − x + 2 . The point 0, 2 is when Fritzy’s path crosses Chewbacca’s path 3 3 in other words, where Fritzy catches Chewbacca. 1 (b) y = 6 x3 + 21 − 2 . Using the techniques from Chapter 4, we find as x → 0+ , y → ∞ x 3 which means, in this case, Fritzy’s pursuit never ends; he never catches Chewbacca. This makes sense since Chewbacca has a head start and is running faster than Fritzy. 1 y = 3 x3/2 − √ x+ 2 3 y = 1 x3 + 6 1 2x − 2 3 328 Further Topics in Functions Chapter 6 Exponential and Logarithmic Functions 6.1 Introduction to Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Of all of...
