Solutions

Chapter 2.5, Problem 13E

a.

To determine

To describe how the graph of the function can be obtained from the graph of f .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 13E

The graph of y=f(4x) is obtained by shrinking the graph of f by a factor of 14

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The function is y=f(4x)

Use definition of vertical shifting and horizontal shrinking of the graph,

When graph of f is given, then for function y=f(4x) , first shrink the graph of y=f(4x) horizontally by a factor of 14

b.

To determine

To describe how the graph of the function can be obtained from the graph of f .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 13E

The graph of y=f(14x) is obtained by stretching the graph of y=f(x) horizontally by a factor of 2 , then stretch the graph vertically by a factor of 4 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The function is y=2f(12x)

Use definition of vertical and horizontal stretching of the graph,

When graph of f is given, then for function y=f(14x) , first stretch the graph of y=f(14x) horizontally by a factor of 4
