Explanation of Solution

Given information:consider the function f(x)=2x4 .

Calculation:

Let us take any values of x and then make a table of values.

  xf(x)=2x432(3)4=1022(2)4=002(0)4=412(1)4=242(4)4=4

Then we plot the points given by the table and join them by a smooth curve to obtain the graph f(x)=2x4 as shown below:
