WEEK 5 DISCUSSION PROBLEMS FOR ALGEBRAYOU MUST OPEN THE ATTACHMENT TO SEE THE PROBLEMS BEFORE

BIDDING THE LAST 4 WEEKS I HAVE NOT BEEN GETTING FULL POINTS ON

THIS MATH STUFF BECAUSE DIRECTIONS HAVEN’T BEEN FOLLOWED

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length.

For each of the above problems, do the following:

•

•

•

•

•

•

•

For each of your equation, write down five (5) points on the graph of each equation (you

do not have to submit your graph. Draw the graph using paper/pencil or use online

graphing calculators like Desmos Graphing Calculator (Links to an external site.) to

answer the question).

For each of your equation, does the graph of each equation have any intercepts? If yes,

what are they? If not, why not?

State the domain for each of your equations. Write them in interval notation.

State the range for each of your equations. Write them in interval notation.

State whether each of the equations is a function or not giving your reasons for the

answer.

Select one of your graphs and assume it has been shifted three units upward and four

units to the left. Discuss how this transformation affects the equation by rewriting the

equation to incorporate those numbers.

Incorporate the following four math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold

font to emphasize the words in your writing. Do not write definitions for the words; use

them appropriately in sentences describing the thought behind your math work.

o Function

o Relation

o Vertical Line test

o Transformation

OKfinal week aka week 5 #45.

My first equation is y=-3+6.5. First things first we need to plot 5 points,

The next part is asking if the line equation has any intercepts. As my above plot shows this equation has an X

and Y intercept. The x-intercept is (21.6 repeating, O) while the y-intercept is (0,6.5).

Next we find the Domain and Range. Since this equation gives us a line that will extend in both directions

infinitely the domain and range will simply be D=(-0,00) and R=(-0,00), or meaning all real numbers.

Next we determine if the equation is a function. To do so we can use the Vertical line test. Which is If a vertical

line crosses the Relation on the graph only once in all locations, the Relation is a Function. Also keep in mind

that all lines except vertical lines are Functions and closed shapes are not, but parabolic and exponential curves

are. So since my first equation is a straight line with a slope of -03 it passes the Vertical line test and is

a Function.

For my 2nd equation we have f(x)=3×2, so once again lets start of with plotting 5 points.

For the second step we must determine if we have an X and Y intercept and what it is. Once again you by

looking at the points I’ve chosen you can see we have the convience of having our x-intercept also be are

y-intercept (0,0).

Now we find the Domain and Range for our equation. First the domain or as I personally like to think of it the

back and forth or right to left of the equation. As we control the x variable we can plug any number into the

equation to give us a y. So the Domain is simply (-0,00) going forever back and forth or right to left.

Now the Range for the range I think of it as the up and down. So for the range the lowest we can go is O and if

we use 0 as the x variable it will give us a y of O, however when we plug in a negative number it will always spit

out a positive y same goes for the positive side of the spectrum. For our range then we are left with (0,00) or

the lowest we will go is O but we will go on forever in the upwards direction.

Next we determine if the equation is a Function. To do so we will use the Vertical line test once again. Doing so

we can see that the equation is indeed a function as a vertical line will not touch the equation on the Yaxis

more than once for each given point on the X axis.

Now we have to rewrite the equation with the transformed points. To do so I will start by writing it in standard

form for a parabola y=a(x-h)2+k. To start we use our new vertex to substitute for hand k which will give us.

y=a(x+4)2+3 Now we choose any point on the parabola except the vertex so let’s go with (-3,6) to substitute for

x and y.

6=a(-3+4)2+3 Now all that remains is to solve for a which will give us a = 3. Then we just rewrite the equation.

y=3(x+4)2+3 which is the equation for our new parabola after the transformation.
