Solutions

Chapter 1, Problem 2RE

(a)

To determine

To state: The value of g(2).

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 2RE

Solution:

The value of g(2) is 3.

Explanation of Solution

Let y=g(x) be the function.

From the given graph, it is noticed that when x=2, then the curve approaches to 3.

That is, g(2)=3.

(b)

To determine

To explain: Why the function g is one-to-one.

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

The function is one-to-one if it satisfies the horizontal line test.

Horizontal line test states that, if the horizontal line intersects the curve atmost once then the function g is one-to-one.

From the given graph, it is noticed that no horizontal line intersects the graph more than once. So, it satisfies the horizontal line test.

Hence, the function f is one-to-one.

(c)

To determine

To estimate: The values of g1(2).

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 2RE

Solution:

The values of g1(2) is approximately equal to 2.5.

Explanation of Solution

Let y=g(x) be the function, then g1(y)=x.

From the given graph, it is noticed that the value of g(x)=2 when x=2.5.

Then, it can be implied that g1(2)2.5

When y=2, then g1(2)2.5.

(d)

To determine

To estimate: The domain of g1.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 2RE

Solution:

The domain of g1 is [1,3.5].

Explanation of Solution

It is known that the domain of g1 is the range of g and the range of g1 is the domain of g.

From the given graph, it is observed that the range of g is [1,3.5].

Therefore, the domain of g1 is [1,3.5].

(e)

To determine

To sketch: The graph of g1.

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

Graph:

The graph of g1 is obtained by taking the reflection of g about the line y=x. Sketch the graph of g1 as shown below in Figure 1.

Single Variable Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, Enhanced Edition, Chapter 1, Problem 2RE

From Figure1, it is observed that g is the reflection of g1 about the line y=x.
