# Two graphs, a and b, are shown. One is a curve y = f(x) and the other is the graph of its curvature function y = k(x). Identify each curve and explain your choices.38. 39. To determine

To identify: Each curve in the given graph.

Explanation

The curve a has a maximum value, whereas curve b is turning more sharply for a value of x. Similarly, the curve a is almost zero, whereas curve b is approximately straight for a specific value of x. Hence, curve a must be a graph of the curvature of function y=k(x) and curve b is a curve y=f(x)
