Analzing the Graph of a Function It would be difficult to overstate the importance of using graphs in mathematics. Descartes s introduction of analtic geometr contributed significantl to the rapid advances in calculus that began during the mid-seventeenth centur. In the words of Lagrange, As long as algebra and geometr traveled separate paths their advance was slow and their applications limited. But when these two sciences joined compan, the drew from each other fresh vitalit and thenceforth marched on at a rapid pace toward perfection. So far, ou have studied several concepts that are useful in analzing the graph of a function. -intercepts and - intercepts (Section P.) Smmetr (Section P.) Domain and range (Section P.) Continuit (Section.) Vertical asmptotes (Section.5) Differentiabilit (Section.) Relative etrema (Section.) Concavit (Section.) Points of (Section.) Horizontal asmptotes (Section.5) Infinite limits at infinit (Section.5) When ou are sketching the graph of a function, either b hand or with a graphing utilit, remember that normall ou cannot show the entire graph. The decision as to which part of the graph ou choose to show is often crucial. For instance, which of the viewing windows in Figure. better represents the graph of f 5 7 0? B seeing both views, it is clear that the second viewing window gives a more complete representation of the graph. But would a third viewing window reveal other interesting portions of the graph? To answer this, ou need to use calculus to interpret the first and second derivatives. Here are some guidelines for determining a good viewing window for the graph of a function. Guidelines for Analzing the Graph of a Function. Determine the domain and range of the function.. Determine the intercepts, asmptotes, and smmetr of the graph.. Locate the -values for which f and f either are zero or do not eist. Use the results to determine relative etrema and points of. NOTE In these guidelines, note the importance of algebra (as well as calculus) for solving the equations f 0, f 0, and f 0.

The graph of f is shown in Figure.5.

Be sure ou understand all of the implications of creating a table such as that shown in Eample. Because of the use of calculus, ou can be sure that the graph has no relative etrema or points of other than those shown in Figure.5. TECHNOLOGY PITFALL Without using the tpe of analsis outlined in Eample, it is eas to obtain an incomplete view of a graph s basic characteristics. For instance, Figure. shows a view of the graph of g 9 0. From this view, it appears that the graph of g is about the same as the graph of f shown in Figure.5. The graphs of these two functions, however, differ significantl. Tr enlarging the viewing window to see the differences.

The graph of a rational function (having no common factors and whose denominator is of degree or greater) has a slant asmptote if the degree of the numerator eceeds the degree of the denominator b eactl.

Figure.5 < < < < < < < < f f f 7 0 Relative minimum Increasing, concave upward 0 Increasing, concave downward Increasing, concave upward The fourth-degree polnomial function in Eample 5 has one relative minimum and no relative maima. In general, a polnomial function of degree n can have at most n relative etrema, and at most n points of. Moreover, polnomial functions of even degree must have at least one relative etremum. Remember from the Leading Coefficient Test described in Section P. that the end behavior of the graph of a polnomial function is determined b its leading coefficient and its degree. For instance, because the polnomial in Eample 5 has a positive leading coefficient, the graph rises to the right. Moreover, because the degree is even, the graph also rises to the left.
