2.2 Power Function w/ modeling

2.3 Polynomials of higher degree with modeling


Power function
Power function

  • A power function is any function that can be written in the form:

    f(x) = kxa, where k and a ≠ 0

  • Monomial functions: f(x) = k or f(x) = kxn

  • Cubing function: f(x) = x3

  • Square root function: f(x) = x

  • Higher degree: (standard form)

    p(x) = anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 +… + a1x + a0


Analyzing power functions
Analyzing Power functions

  • To do you will find the following:

    domain

    range

    continuous/discontinuous

    increasing/decreasing intervals

    even (symmetric over y-axis)/odd function (symmetric over origin)

    boundedness

    local extrema (max/min)

    asymptotes (both VA and HA)

    end behavior (as it approaches both -∞ & ∞


Example analyze f x 2x 4
Example: analyze f(x) = 2x4

  • Power: 4, constant: 2

  • Domain: (-∞,∞)

  • Range: [0, ∞)

  • Continuous

  • Increasing: [0,∞), decreasing: (-∞, 0]

  • Even: symmetric w/ respect to y-axis

  • Bounded below

  • Local minimum: (0, 0)

  • Asymptotes: none

  • End behavior: lim 2x4 = ∞, lim 2x4 = ∞

    x -∞ x ∞

    (in other words, on the left the graph goes up, on the right the graph goes up)

    Try one: f(x) = 5x3


Investigating end behavior
Investigating end behavior

  • When determining end behavior you need to determine if the graph is going to -∞ (down) or ∞ (up) as x -∞ & as x ∞

  • Example: graph each function in the window [-5, 5] by [-15, 15] . Describe the end behavior using lim f(x) & lim f(x)

    x -∞ x ∞

  • f(x)=x3+2x2-5x-6: -∞,∞

  • Do exploration


Finding 0 s
Finding 0’s

  • Find the 0’s of f(x) = 3x3 – x2 -2x

  • Algebraically: factor

    3x3 – x2 -2x = 0

    x(3x2 – x -2) = 0

    x(3x + 2)(x - 1) = 0

    x = 0, 3x + 2 = 0, x – 1= 0

    x = 0, x = -2/3, x = 1

  • Graphically: graph & find the 0’s (2nd trace #2)


Zeros of polynomial function
Zeros of Polynomial function

  • Multiplicity of a Zero

    If f is a polynomial function and (x-c)m is a factor of f but (x – c)m+1 is not, then c is a zero of multiplicity m of f.

  • Zero of Odd and Even Multiplicity:

    If a poly. funct. f has a real 0 c of odd multiplicity, then the graph of f crosses the x-axis at (c, 0) & the value of f changes sign at x=c

    if a poly. funct. f has a real 0 c of even multiplicity, then the graph doesn’t cross the x-axis at (c, 0) & the value of f doesn’t change sign at x=0


Multiplicity
Multiplicity

  • State the degree, list the 0’s, state the multiplicity of each 0 and what the graph does at each corresponding 0. then sketch the graph by hand (look at exponents: if 1 then crosses, if odd then wiggles, if even then tangent)

  • Examples: 1)f(x) = x2 + 2x – 8

    degree: 2, 0’s: 2, -4, graph: crosses at x=-4 & x= 2

    2) f(x) = (x + 2)3(x-1)(x-3)2

    Now finish paper


Writing the functions given 0 s
Writing the functions given 0’s

  • 0, -2, 5

    1) rewrite w/ a variable & opposite sign:

    x(x + 2)(x – 5)

    2) simplify

    x(x2 -3x + -10)

    x3 – 3x2 – 10x

    Try one: -6, -4, 5
