Name the Functions - College Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Now you may not have heard the term constant function before, but intuitively
  • 0:04 - 0:08
    would think that, this is a function who that has a constant value, at all
  • 0:08 - 0:13
    values of the input. That's what graph A is. It's at the form y equals some
  • 0:13 - 0:19
    constant, C, let's say. Actually in this case it looks more like 3, so we'll
  • 0:19 - 0:23
    just write that. Linear functions you recognize. It's graph C right here. The
  • 0:23 - 0:29
    quadratic function is the parabola, graph F. The absolute value function, which
  • 0:29 - 0:37
    you saw in a problem set earlier in the course, is graph B. The cubic function
  • 0:37 - 0:41
    is graph D. And the square root function is graph E. Now you may not have seen
  • 0:41 - 0:45
    this graph before either. But as always, you can test points picking values of x
  • 0:45 - 0:50
    and then plugging them into the function to figure what the y coordinate should
  • 0:50 - 0:55
    be. The graph of this function is y equals the square root of x. So if x equals
  • 0:55 - 1:01
    0, y equals 0. If x equals 1, y equals 1. And we can see that moving further
  • 1:01 - 1:04
    over, if x equals 5, y equals just over 2.
