1 2- Combining Functions Phsics. A stunt driver is planning to jump a motorccle from one ramp to another as illustrated in the figure. The ramps are 10 feet high, and the distance between the ramps is 80 feet. The trajector of the ccle through the air is given b the graph of f() v 2 2 where v is the velocit of the ccle in feet per second as it leaves the ramp. 92. Phsics. The trajector of a circus performer shot from a cannon is given b the graph of the function Both the cannon and the net are 10 feet high (see the figure). f() f() f() 10 feet 10 feet 80 feet (A) How fast must the ccle be traveling when it leaves the ramp in order to follow the trajector illustrated in the figure? (B) What is the maimum height of the ccle above the ground as it follows this trajector? (A) How far from the muzzle of the cannon should the center of the net be placed so that the performer lands in the center of the net? (B) What is the maimum height of the performer above the ground? SECTION 2- Combining Functions Operations on Functions Composition Elementar Functions Vertical and Horizontal Shifts Reflections, Epansions, and Contractions If two functions f and g are both defined at a real number, and if f() and g() are both real numbers, then it is possible to perform real number operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division with f() and g(). Furthermore, if g() is a number in the domain of f, then it is also possible to evaluate f at g(). In this section we see how operations on the values of functions can be used to define operations on the functions themselves. We also investigate the graphic implications of some of these operations. Operations on Functions The functions f and g given b f() 2 3 and g() 2 4 are defined for all real numbers. Thus, for an real we can perform the following operations: f() g() f() g() 2 3 ( 2 4) f()g() (2 3)( 2 4)

2 166 2 Graphs and Functions For 2 we can also form the quotient f() 2 3 g() Notice that the result of each operation is a new function. Thus, we have ( f g)() f() g() ( f g)() f() g() ( fg)() f()g() g f f() 2 3 () g() Sum Difference Product Quotient Notice that the sum, difference, and product functions are defined for all values of, as were f and g, but the domain of the quotient function must be restricted to eclude those values where g() 0. DEFINITION 1 Operations on Functions The sum, difference, product, and quotient of the functions f and g are the functions defined b ( f g)() f() g() ( f g)() f() g() ( fg)() f()g() g f f() () g() g() 0 Sum function Difference function Product function Quotient function Each function is defined on the intersection of the domains of f and g, with the eception that the values of where g() 0 must be ecluded from the domain of the quotient function. EXAMPLE 1 Finding the Sum, Difference, Product, and Quotient Functions Let f() 4 and g() 3. Find the functions f g, f g, fg, and f/g, and find their domains. Solution ( f g)() f() g() 4 3 ( f g)() f() g() 4 3 ( fg)() f()g() 4 3 (4 )(3 ) 12 2

3 2- Combining Functions Domain of g [ Domain of f [ The domains of f and g are The intersection of these domains is g f f() 4 () g() Domain of f: 4 or (, 4] Domain of g: 3 or [ 3, ) Domain of f g, f g, and fg [ f Domain of g [ ) [ (, 4] [ 3, ) [ 3, 4] This is the domain of the functions f g, f g, and fg. Since g( 3) 0, 3 must be ecluded from the domain of the quotient function. Thus, Domain of f : ( 3, 4] g Matched Problem 1 Let f() and g() 10. Find the functions f g, f g, fg, and f/g, and find their domains. Composition Consider the function h given b the equation h() 2 1 Inside the radical is a first-degree polnomial that defines a linear function. So the function h is reall a combination of a square root function and a linear function. We can see this more clearl as follows. Let u 2 1 g() u f(u) Then h() f [g()] The function h is said to be the composite of the two functions f and g. (Loosel speaking, we can think of h as a function of a function.) What can we sa about the domain of h given the domains of f and g? In forming the composite h() f [g()]: must be restricted so that is in the domain of g and g() is in the domain of f. Since the domain of f, where f(u) u, is the set of nonnegative real numbers, we see that g() must be nonnegative; that is, g() Thus, the domain of h is this restricted domain of g.

4 168 2 Graphs and Functions A special function smbol is often used to represent the composite of two functions, which we define in general terms below. DEFINITION 2 Composite Functions Given functions f and g, then f g is called their composite and is defined b the equation ( f g)() f [g()] The domain of f g is the set of all real numbers in the domain of g where g() is in the domain of f. As an immediate consequence of Definition 2, we have (see Fig. 1): The domain of f g is alwas a subset of the domain of g, and the range of f g is alwas a subset of the range of f. FIGURE 1 Composite functions. Domain f g f g (f g)() f [g()] Range f g g f g() Domain g Range g Domain f Range f EXAMPLE 2 Finding the Composition of Two Functions Find ( f g)() and (g f )() and their domains for f() 10 and g() Solution ( f g)() f [g()] f(3 4 1) (3 4 1) 10 (g f )() g[ f()] g( 10 ) 3( 10 ) The functions f and g are both defined for all real numbers. If is an real number, then is in the domain of g, g() is in the domain of f, and, consequentl, is in the domain of f g. Thus, the domain of f g is the set of all real numbers. Using similar reasoning, the domain of g f also is the set of all real numbers. Matched Problem 2 Find ( f g)() and (g f )() and their domains for f() 2 1 and g() ( 1)/2. If two functions are both defined for all real numbers, then so is their composition.

5 2- Combining Functions 169 EXPLORE-DISCUSS 1 Verif that if f() 1/(1 2) and g() 1/, then ( f g)() /( 2). Clearl, f g is not defined at 2. Are there an other values of where f g is not defined? Eplain. If either function in a composition is not defined for some real numbers, then, as Eample 3 illustrates, the domain of the composition ma not be what ou first think it should be. EXAMPLE 3 Finding the Composition of Two Functions Find ( f g)() and its domain for f() 4 2 and g() 3. Solution We begin b stating the domains of f and g, a good practice in an composition problem: Domain f : 2 2 or [ 2, 2] Domain g: 3 or (, 3] Net we find the composition: ( f g)() f [g()] f( 3 ) 4 ( 3 ) 2 4 (3 ) 1 ( t) 2 t, t 0 Even though 1 is defined for all 1, we must restrict the domain of f g to those values that also are in the domain of g. Thus, Domain f g: 1 and 3 or [ 1, 3] Matched Problem 3 Find ( f g)() and its domain for f() 9 2 and g() 1. CAUTION The domain of f g cannot alwas be determined simpl b eamining the final form of ( f g)(). An numbers that are ecluded from the domain of g must also be ecluded from the domain of f g. In calculus, it is not onl important to be able to find the composition of two functions, but also to recognize when a given function is the composition of two simpler functions.

6 170 2 Graphs and Functions EXAMPLE 4 Recognizing Composition Forms Epress h as a composition of two simpler functions for h() (3 ) Solution If we let f() and g() 3, then h() (3 ) f(3 ) f [g()] ( f g)() and we have epressed h as the composition of f and g. Matched Problem 4 Epress h as a composition of the square root function and a linear function for h() 4 7. Elementar Functions The functions g() 2 4 h() ( 4) 2 k() 4 2 can all be obtained from the function f() 2 b performing simple operations on f: g() f() 4 h() f( 4) k() 4f() It follows that the graphs of functions g, h, and k are closel related to the graph of function f. Before eploring relationships of this tpe, we want to identif some elementar functions, summarize their basic properties, and include them in our librar of elementar functions. Figure 2 shows si basic functions that ou will encounter frequentl. You should know the definition, domain, and range of each and be able to sketch their graphs.

In general, this is a difficult question to answer. However, if g is chosen to be a ver simple function, such as g() k or g() h, then we can establish some ver useful relationships between the graph of f() and the graphs of f() k, kf(), and f( h). We refer to the graph obtained b performing one of these operations on a function f as a transformation of the graph of f(). f() EXPLORE-DISCUSS 2 Let. (A) Graph f() k for k 2, 0, and 1 simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. Describe the relationship between the graph of f() and the graph of f() k for k, an real number. (B) Graph f( h) for h 2, 0, and 1 simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. Describe the relationship between the graph of f() and the graph of f( h) for h, an real number. EXAMPLE Vertical and Horizontal Shifts (A) How are the graphs of 2 2 and 2 3 related to the graph of 2? Confirm our answer b graphing all three functions simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. (B) How are the graphs of ( 2) 2 and ( 3) 2 related to the graph of 2? Confirm our answer b graphing all three functions simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. Solutions (A) The graph of 2 2 is the same as the graph of 2 shifted upward 2 units, and the graph of 2 3 is the same as the graph of 2 shifted downward 3 units. Figure 3 on the net page confirms these conclusions. [It appears that the graph of f() k is the graph of f() shifted up if k is positive and down if k is negative.]

Figure 4 confirms these conclusions. [It appears that the graph of f( h) is the graph of f() shifted right if h is negative and left if h is positive the opposite of what ou might epect.] FIGURE 4 Horizontal shifts. 2 ( 3) 2 ( 2) 2 Matched Problem (A) How are the graphs of 3 and 1 related to the graph of?

Confirm our answer b graphing all three functions simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. Comparing the graph of f() k with the graph of f(), we see that the graph of f() k can be obtained from the graph of f() b verticall 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 f( h) with the graph of f(), we see that the graph of f( h) can be obtained from the graph of f() b horizontall 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 6 Vertical and Horizontal Translations (Shifts) The graphs in Figure are either horizontal or vertical shifts of the graph of f().

G f H M f N Reflections, Epansions, and Contractions We now investigate how the graph of Af() is related to the graph of f() for different real numbers A. EXPLORE-DISCUSS 3 (A) Graph A for A 1, 2, and 2 simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. (B) Graph A for A 1, 2, and 1 2 simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. (C) Describe the relationship between the graph of h() and the graph of G() A for A an real number. 1

10 174 2 Graphs and Functions Comparing the graph of Af() with the graph of f(), we see that the graph of Af() can be obtained from the graph of f() b multipling each ordinate value of the latter b A. The result is a vertical epansion of the graph of f() if A 1, a vertical contraction of the graph of f() if 0 A 1, and a reflection in the ais if A 1. EXAMPLE 7 Reflections, Epansions, and Contractions (A) How are the graphs of 2 3 and 0. 3 related to the graph of 3? Confirm our answer b graphing all three functions simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. (B) How is the graph of 2 3 related to the graph of 3? Confirm our answer b graphing both functions simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. Solution (A) The graph of 2 3 is a vertical epansion of the graph of 3 b a factor of 2, and the graph of 0. 3 is a vertical contraction of the graph of 3 b a factor of 0.. Figure 7 confirms this conclusion. FIGURE 7 Vertical epansion and contraction (B) The graph of 2 3 is a reflection in the ais and a vertical epansion of the graph of 3. Figure 8 confirms this conclusion. FIGURE 8 Reflection and vertical epansion Matched Problem 7 (A) How are the graphs of 2 and 0. related to the graph of? Confirm our answer b graphing all three functions simultaneousl in the same coordinate sstem. (B) How is the graph of 0. related to the graph of? Confirm our answer b graphing both functions in the same coordinate sstem.

FIGURE 10 g() Solution To transform the graph of 2 [Fig. 11(a)] into the graph of g(), we first reflect the graph of 2 in the ais [Fig. 11(b)], then shift it to the right two units [Fig. 11(c)].

Famil of Curves. In calculus, solutions to certain tpes of problems often involve an unspecified constant. For eample, consider the equation 1 C 2 C where C is a positive constant.
