Name the Functions - College Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Now you may not have heard the term constant function before, but intuitively we
  • 0:04 - 0:08
    think that, this is a function that has a constant value, at all values of the
  • 0:08 - 0:15
    input. That's what graph A is. It's at the form y equals some constant, C, let's
  • 0:15 - 0:20
    say. Actually in this case it looks more like 3, so we'll just write that.
  • 0:20 - 0:25
    Linear functions you recognize. It's graph C right here. The quadratic function
  • 0:25 - 0:30
    is the parabola, graph F. The absolute value function, which you saw in a
  • 0:30 - 0:39
    problem set earlier in the course, is graph B. The cubic function is graph D.
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    And the square root function is graph E. Now you may not have seen this graph
  • 0:41 - 0:45
    before either. But as always, you can test points picking values of x and then
  • 0:45 - 0:50
    plugging them into the function to figure what the y coordinate should be. The
  • 0:50 - 0:55
    graph of this function is y equals the square root of x. So if x equals 0, y
  • 0:55 - 1:01
    equals 0. If x equals 1, y equals 1. And we can see that moving further over, if
  • 1:01 - 1:04
    x equals 5, y equals just over 2.
