Solutions

Chapter 2.5, Problem 89E

a.

To determine

What shifting and shrinking operations must be operated on the function y=t2 to obtain the function y=f(t)

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 89E

To shift upward 4 units, shrink vertically by a factor of 0.01

Explanation of Solution

Given information : The question is

The annual sales of a certain company can be modeled by the function f(t)=4+0.01t2 , where t represents years since 1990

Calculation : The particular equation is

  f(t)=4+0.01t2

To obtain y=f(t) from y=t2 , its shift by 4 units upward and shrink by 100 times

b.

To determine

To transform the new function y=g(t)

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 89E

The shift to the right 10 units, g(t)=4+0.01(t10)2

Explanation of Solution

Given information : The question is

Calculation : To represent year since 2000 instead of 1990 , there will be a horizontal shift by 10 units

That means,

The new function will be g(t)=4+0.01(t10)2
