To find: The conclusions from the graphs and effects on the value of c .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 73E

The graphs of even roots are similar to y=x and for odd roots are similar to y=x3 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given function is f(x)=xc .

Calculation:

From the graphs in part (a) and (b), we can observed that the graphs of even roots are similar to y=x .

The graphs of odd roots are similar to y=x3 .

As c increases

The graph of y=x1/c=xc becomes steeper near x=0 and flatter when x>1 .

Therefore, the graphs of even roots are similar to y=x and for odd roots are similar to y=x3 .
