Solutions

Chapter 3.1, Problem 47E
To determine

To Find: The domain and range of the function.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 47E

the domain is all real numbers, that is (,)

the range is [232,) .

Explanation of Solution

Given: The function is f(x)=2x2+6x7

Calculation:

A quadratic function f(x)=ax2+bx+c is expressed in standard from as: f(x)=a(xh)2+k

Here, f(x)=2x2+6x7 is a polynomial function, so there is no value that will restrict the domain. Therefore, the domain is all real numbers, that is (,)

As a>0 , there is minimum value is f(b2a)

  x=(b2a)=(622)=32

Put the value of x in the function,

  f(x)=2x2+6x7f(32)=2(32)2+6(32)7f(32)=232

The minimum value of y=232 which occurs at x=32 , Hence the range is [232,) .
