It seems silly to list a ﬁnal answer as (2.00, 1.00). Indeed, Calculus conﬁrms that the exact answer to this
problem is, in fact, (2, 1). As you are well aware by now, the author is a pedant, and as such, uses the decimal places
to remind the reader that any result garnered from a calculator in this fashion is an approximation, and should be
treated as such. 1.7 Graphs of Functions 1.7.2 77 Exercises 1. Sketch the graphs of the following functions. State the domain of the function, identify any
intercepts and test for symmetry.
(a) f (x) = x−2
3 (b) f (x) = √
5−x (c) f (x) = √
3 x (d) f (x) = 1
x2 + 1 2. Analytically determine if the following functions are even, odd or neither.
(a) f (x) = 7x
(b) f (x) = 7x + 2
(c) f (x) = 1
(g) (h) f (x) = x4 +x3 +x2 +x+1
(i) f (x) = 5 − x f (x) = 4
f (x) = 0
f (x) = x6 − x4 + x2 + 9
f (x) = −x5 − x3 + x (j) f (x) = x2 − x − 6 3. Given the graph of y = f (x) below, answer all of the following questions.
