  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.2, Problem 87E , additional homework tip  1

Interpretation:

In the graph, the graph for the function g(x)=|x2+x6| opens downward and the graph of the function f(x)=x2+x6 and these intersects each other on the x -axis. Since the graph of g(x) is reflection of the function f(x) above the x -axis. Therefore, the functions are related to each other as follows.

  g(x)=|f(x)|

(b)

To determine

To draw: The graph of the functions f(x)=x46x2 and g(x)=|x46x2| .

Interpretation:

In the graph, the graph for the function g(x)=|x46x2| opens downward and the graph of the function f(x)=x46x2 and these intersects each other on the x -axis. Since the graph of g(x) is reflection of the function f(x) above the x -axis. Therefore, the functions are related to each other as follows.

  g(x)=|f(x)|

(c)

To determine

To find: The relation between f and g when g(x)=|f(x)| .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 87E

The function g is reflection of the function f .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given relation is g(x)=|f(x)| .

Calculation:

Let the function f(x)=x22x+1 and g(x)=|x22x+1| . Draw the graph for these functions.

In the graph for the function g(x)=|x22x+1| opens downward and the graph of the function f(x)=x22x+1 and these intersects each other on the x -axis. Since the graph of g(x) is reflection of the function f(x) above the x -axis. Therefore, the functions are related to each other as follows.

Therefore, the function g is reflection of the function f .
