Solutions

Chapter 1.3, Problem 6E
To determine

To create: A function from the given graph by using transformations.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 6E

The function of the shown graph is y=23(x2)(x2)2 .

Explanation of Solution

The equation of the given graph is y=3xx2 .

Let y=f(x) .

Notice that the given graph is a semi-circle with the domain [0, 3] and the range [0, 1.5].

Also, it is observed from the given graph that the graph is shifted 2 units horizontally and stretched 2 units vertically.

Thus, subtract 2 from x and multiply y by 2.

Therefore, the given function is changed as follows.

2f(x2)=3(x2)(x2)2

Thus, the function of the shown graph is y=23(x2)(x2)2 .
