Section 1-5 Functions: Graphs and Transformations A Beginning Library of Elementary Functions Vertical and Horizontal Shifts Reflections, Expansions, and Contractions Even and Odd Functions The functions g(x) x 2 2 h(x) (x 2) 2 k(x) 2x 2 can be expressed in terms of the function f(x) x 2 as follows: g(x) f(x) 2 h(x) f(x 2) k(x) 2f(x) In this section we will see that the graphs of functions g, h, and k are closely related to the graph of function f. Insight gained by understanding these relationships will help us analyze and interpret the graphs of many different functions. A Beginning Library of Elementary Functions As we progress through this book, we will encounter a number of basic functions that we will want to add to our library of elementary functions. Figure 1 shows six basic functions that you will encounter frequently. You should know the definition, domain, and range of each of these functions, and be able to recognize their graphs. You should graph each basic function in Figure 1 on your graphing utility. Most graphing utilities allow you to define a number of functions, usually denoted by y 1, y 2, y 3,...You can graph all of these functions simultaneously, or

Consult your manual to determine how many functions can be stored in your graphing utility at one time and how to select particular functions for graphing. Many of our investigations in this section will involve graphing two or more functions at the same time. Vertical and Horizontal Shifts If a new function is formed by performing an operation on a given function, then the graph of the new function is called a transformation of the graph of the original function. For example, if we add a constant k to f(x), then the graph of y f(x) is transformed into the graph of y f(x) k. 1 Let f(x) x. (A) Graph y f(x) k for k 2, 0, and 1 simultaneously in the same viewing window. Describe the relationship between the graph of y f(x) and the graph of y f(x) k for k any real number. (B) Graph y f(x h) for h 2, 0, and 1 simultaneously in the same viewing window. Describe the relationship between the graph of y f(x) and the graph of y f(x h) for h any real number.

3 1-5 Functions: Graphs and Transformations 63 EXAMPLE 1 Solutions FIGURE 2 Vertical shifts. Vertical and Horizontal Shifts (A) How are the graphs of y x 2 2 and y x 2 3 related to the graph of y x 2? Confirm your answer by graphing all three functions simultaneously in the same viewing window. (B) How are the graphs of y (x 2) 2 and y (x 3) 2 related to the graph of y x 2? Confirm your answer by graphing all three functions simultaneously in the same viewing window. (A) The graph of y x 2 2 is the same as the graph of y x 2 shifted upward 2 units, and the graph of y x 2 3 is the same as the graph of y x 2 shifted downward 3 units. Figure 2 confirms these conclusions. (It appears that the graph of y f(x) k is the graph of y f(x) shifted up if k is positive and down if k is negative.) (B) The graph of y (x 2) 2 is the same as the graph of y x 2 shifted to the left 2 units, and the graph of y (x 3) 2 is the same as the graph of y x 2 shifted to the right 3 units. Figure 3 confirms these conclusions. [It appears that the graph of y f(x h) is the graph of y f(x) shifted right if h is negative and left if h is positive the opposite of what you might expect.] FIGURE 3 Horizontal shifts. MATCHED PROBLEM 1 (A) How are the graphs of y x 3 and y x 1 related to the graph of y x? Confirm your answer by graphing all three functions simultaneously in the same viewing window. (B) How are the graphs of y x 3 and y x 1 related to the graph of y x? Confirm your answer by graphing all three functions simultaneously in the same viewing window.

4 64 1 FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS Comparing the graph of y f(x) k with the graph of y f(x), we see that the graph of y f(x) k can be obtained from the graph of y f(x) by vertically translating (shifting) the graph of the latter upward k units if k is positive and downward k units if k is negative. Comparing the graph of y f(x h) with the graph of y f(x), we see that the graph of y f(x h) can be obtained from the graph of y f(x) by horizontally translating (shifting) the graph of the latter h units to the left if h is positive and units to the right if h is negative. h EXAMPLE 2 FIGURE 4 Vertical and horizontal shifts. Vertical and Horizontal Translations (Shifts) The graphs in Figure 4 are either horizontal or vertical shifts of the graph of f(x) x. Write appropriate equations for functions G, H, M, and N in terms of f. Solution Functions H and G are vertical shifts given by H(x) x 3 G(x) x 1 Functions M and N are horizontal shifts given by M(x) x 2 N(x) x 3 MATCHED PROBLEM 2 FIGURE 5 Vertical and horizontal shifts. The graphs in Figure 5 are either horizontal or vertical shifts of the graph of f(x) x 3. Write appropriate equations for functions H, G, M, and N in terms of f. Reflections, Expansions, and Contractions We now investigate how the graph of y Af(x) is related to the graph of y f(x) for different real numbers A.

5 1-5 Functions: Graphs and Transformations 65 2 (A) Graph y A x for A 1, 2, and 2 simultaneously in the same viewing window. (B) Graph y A x for A 1, 2, and 1 2 simultaneously in the same viewing window. (C) Describe the relationship between the graph of h(x) x and the graph of G(x) A x for A any nonzero real number. 1 Comparing the graph of y Af(x) with the graph of y f(x), we see that the graph of y Af(x) can be obtained from the graph of y f(x) by multiplying each ordinate value of the latter by A. The result is a vertical expansion of the graph of y f(x) if A > 1, a vertical contraction of the graph of y f(x) if 0 A 1, and a reflection in the x axis if A 1. EXAMPLE 3 Reflections, Expansions, and Contractions (A) How are the graphs of y 2 3 x and y x related to the graph of y 3 x? Confirm your answer by graphing all three functions simultaneously in the same viewing window. (B) How is the graph of y 2 3 x related to the graph of y 3 x? Confirm your answer by graphing both functions simultaneously in the same viewing window. Solutions (A) The graph of y 2 3 x is a vertical expansion of the graph of y 3 x by a factor of 2, and the graph of y x is a vertical contraction of the graph of y 3 x by a factor of 0.5. Figure 6 confirms this conclusion. FIGURE 6 Vertical expansion and contraction. FIGURE 7 Reflection and vertical expansion. (B) The graph of y 2 3 x is a reflection in the x axis and a vertical expansion of the graph of y 3 x. Figure 7 confirms this conclusion.

Confirm your answer by graphing all three functions simultaneously in the same viewing window. (B) How is the graph of y 0.5x related to the graph of y x? Confirm your answer by graphing both functions in the same viewing window. The various transformations we have discussed are summarized in the following box for easy reference: 1 GRAPH TRANSFORMATIONS Vertical Translation [see Fig. 8(a)]: y f(x) k k 0 k 0 Shift graph of y f(x) up k units. Shift graph of y f(x) down k units. Horizontal Translation [see Fig. 8(b)]: y f(x h) h 0 h 0 Shift graph of y f(x) left h units. Shift graph of y f(x) right h units.

7 1-5 Functions: Graphs and Transformations 67 3 EXAMPLE 4 Use a graphing utility to explore the graph of y A(x h) 2 k for various values of the constants A, h, and k. Discuss how the graph of y A(x h) 2 k is related to the graph of y x 2. Combining Graph Transformations The graph of y g(x) in Figure 9 is a transformation of the graph of y x 2. Find an equation for the function g. FIGURE 9 Solution To transform the graph of y x 2 [Fig. 10(a)] into the graph of y g(x), we first reflect the graph of y x 2 in the x axis [Fig. 10(b)], then shift it to the right two units [Fig. 10(c)]. Thus, an equation for the function g is g(x) (x 2) 2 FIGURE 10 (a) y x 2 (b) y x 2 (c) y (x 2) 2 MATCHED PROBLEM 4 FIGURE 11 The graph of y h(x) in Figure 11 is a transformation of the graph of y x 3. Find an equation for the function h.

8 68 1 FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS Even and Odd Functions Certain transformations leave the graphs of some functions unchanged. For example, reflecting the graph of y x 2 in the y axis does not change the graph. Functions with this property are called even functions. Similarly, reflecting the graph of y x 3 in the x axis and then in the y axis does not change the graph. Functions with this property are called odd functions. More formally, we have the following definitions. EVEN AND ODD FUNCTIONS If f(x) f( x) for all x in the domain of f, then f is an even function. If f( x) f(x) for all x in the domain of f, then f is an odd function. FIGURE 12 Even and odd functions. The graph of an even function is said to be symmetric with respect to the y axis and the graph of an odd function is said to be symmetric with respect to the origin (see Fig. 12). Refer to the graphs of the basic functions in Figure 1. These graphs show that the square and absolute value functions are even functions, and the identity, cube, and cube root functions are odd functions. Notice in Figure 1(e) that the square root function is not symmetric with respect to the y axis or the origin. Thus, the square root function is neither even nor odd. In certain situations, it is useful to determine if a function is even or odd without graphing the function. The next example illustrates this process. EXAMPLE 5 Testing for Even and Odd Functions Without graphing, determine whether the functions f, g, and h are even, odd, or neither: (A) f(x) x 4 1 (B) g(x) x 3 1 (C) h(x) x 5 x Solutions (A) f(x) x 4 1 f( x) ( x) 4 1 x 4 1 f(x) Therefore, f is even. ( x) 4 [( 1)x] 4 ( 1) 4 x 4 x 4 since ( 1) 4 1.

MATCHED PROBLEM 5 Without graphing, determine whether the functions F, G, and H are even, odd, or neither: (A) F(x) x 3 2x (B) G(x) x 2 1 (C) H(x) 2x 4 In the solution of Example 5, notice that we used the fact that ( x) n x n x n if n is an even integer if n is an odd integer It is this property that motivates the use of the terms even and odd when describing symmetry properties of the graphs of functions. In addition to being an aid to graphing, certain problems and developments in calculus and more advanced mathematics are simplified if we recognize the presence of either an even or an odd function. Answers to Matched Problems 1. (A) The graph of y x 3 is the same as the graph of y x shifted upward 3 units, and the graph of y x 1 is the same as the graph of y x shifted downward 1 unit. The figure confirms these conclusions. (B) The graph of y x 3 is the same as the graph of y x shifted to the left 3 units, and the graph of y x 1 is the same as the graph of y x shifted to the right 1 unit. The figure confirms these conclusions.

The figure confirms these conclusions. (B) The graph of y 0.5x is a vertical contraction and a reflection in the x axis of the graph of y x. The figure confirms this conclusion. 4.

Describe the relationship between the graphs of f(x) and in Problems f(x) O(x) 1 2 [ f(x) f( x)] APPLICATIONS f(x), f(x), and f(x) 71. Production Costs. Total production costs for a product can be broken down into fixed costs, which do not depend on the number of units produced, and variable costs, which do depend on the number of units produced. Thus, the total cost of producing x units of the product can be expressed in the form C(x) K f(x) where K is a constant that represents the fixed costs and f(x) is a function that represents the variable costs. Use the graph of the variable-cost function f(x) shown in the figure to graph the total cost function if the fixed costs are \$30, Complete the graph of f over the interval [ 5, 0], given that f is an even function. 60.

Let f be any function with the property that x is in the domain of f whenever x is in the domain of f, and let E and O be the functions defined by E(x) 1 2 [ f(x) f( x)]

14 74 1 FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS 72. Cost Function. Refer to the variable-cost function f(x) in Problem 71. Suppose construction of a new production facility results in a 25% decrease in the variable cost at all levels of output. If F is the new variable-cost function, use the graph of f to graph y F(x). 73. Timber Harvesting. To determine when a forest should be harvested, forest managers often use formulas to estimate the number of board feet a tree will produce. A board foot equals 1 square foot of wood, 1 inch thick. Suppose that the number of board feet y yielded by a tree can be estimated by y f(x) C 0.004(x 10) 3 where x is the diameter of the tree in inches measured at a height of 4 feet above the ground and C is a constant that depends on the species being harvested. Graph y f(x) for C 10, 15, and 20 simultaneously in the viewing window with Xmin 10, Xmax 25, Ymin 10, and Ymax 35. Write a brief verbal description of this collection of functions. 74. Safety Research. If a person driving a vehicle slams on the brakes and skids to a stop, the speed v in miles per hour at the time the brakes are applied is given approximately by v f(x) C x where x is the length of the skid marks and C is a constant that depends on the road conditions and the weight of the vehicle. The table lists values of C for a midsize automobile and various road conditions. Graph v f(x) for the values of C in the table simultaneously in the viewing window with Xmin 0, Xmax 100, Ymin 0, and Ymax 60. Write a brief verbal description of this collection of functions. 75. Family of Curves. In calculus, solutions to certain types of problems often involve an unspecified constant. For example, consider the equation 76. Family of Curves. A family of curves is defined by the equation y 2C 5 C x2 where C is a positive constant. Graph the members of this family corresponding to C 1, 2, 3, and 4 simultaneously in a standard viewing window. Write a brief verbal description of this family of functions. 77. Fluid Flow. A cubic tank is 4 feet on a side and is initially full of water. Water flows out an opening in the bottom of the tank at a rate proportional to the square root of the depth (see the figure). Using advanced concepts from mathematics and physics, it can be shown that the volume of the water in the tank t minutes after the water begins to flow is given by V(t) 64 (C t)2 0 t C 2 C where C is a constant that depends on the size of the opening. Sketch by hand the graphs of y V(t) for C 1, 2, 4, and 8. Write a brief verbal description of this collection of functions. 78. Evaporation. A water trough with triangular ends is 9 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 2 feet deep (see the figure). Initially, the trough is full of water, but due to evaporation, the volume of the water in the trough decreases at a rate proportional to the square root of the volume. Using advanced concepts from mathematics and physics, it can be shown that the volume after t hours is given by C V(t) 1 (t 6C)2 0 t 6 2 C where C is a constant. Sketch by hand the graphs of y V(t) for C 4, 5, and 6. Write a brief verbal description of this collection of functions. y 1 C x2 C where C is a positive constant. The collection of graphs of this equation for all permissible values of C is called a family of curves. Graph the members of this family corresponding to C 2, 3, 4, and 5 simultaneously in a standard viewing window. Write a brief verbal description of this family of functions.
