Chapter 1.5, Problem 14E
To determine

To sketch: The rough graph of the function y=e|x| use transformations if needed.

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

The standard graph of the function y=ex is roughly sketched as shown below in Figure 1.

Single Variable Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, Enhanced Edition, Chapter 1.5, Problem 14E , additional homework tip  1

Reflect the graph y=ex about y-axis and obtain the graph of y=ex . Thus, the graph of y=ex is drawn and shown below in Figure 2.

Then, to draw the graph of y=e|x| , remove the portions of the graphs that appear below 1. Thus, the graph of y=e|x| is shown below in Figure 3.
