radical function

square-root function

A radical function is a function whose rule is a radical expression. A square-root function is a radical function involving . The square-root parent function is . The cube-root parent function is .

Example 1A: Graphing Radical Functions

Graph each function and identify its domain and range.

Make a table of values. Plot enough ordered pairs to see the shape of the curve. Because the square root of a negative number is imaginary, choose only nonnegative values for x – 3.

In addition to graphing radical functions, you can also graph radical inequalities. Use the same procedure you used for graphing linear and quadratic inequalities.

Step 1 Use the related equation to make a table of values.

y =2 x -3

Example 6: Graphing Radical Inequalities

Graph the inequality .

Step 2 Use the table to graph the boundary curve. The inequality sign is >, so use a dashed curve and shade the area above it.

Because the value of x cannot be negative, do not shade left of the y-axis.
