#### Solutions

Chapter 1.5, Problem 13E
To determine

## To sketch: The rough graph of the function y=−2−x use transformations if needed.

Expert Solution

### Explanation of Solution

Rewrite the given function as y=(12)x .

The standard graph of the function y=(12)x is roughly sketched as shown below in Figure 1. Then, to draw the graph of y=(12)x , reflect the graph y=(12)x about thex-axis. Thus, the graph of y=(12)x is shown below in Figure 2. Observe that Figure 2 is obtained from Figure 1 in such a way that it is reflected about the x-axis.
