Name the Functions - College Algebra

• 0:00 - 0:03
Now you may not have heard the term constant function before,
• 0:03 - 0:09
but intuitively we think that this is a function that has a constant value, at all values of the input.
• 0:09 - 0:16
That's what graph A is.
It's of the form y equals some constant, c, let's say.
• 0:16 - 0:20
Actually in this case it looks more like 3,
so we'll just write that.
• 0:20 - 0:23
Linear functions you recognize.
It's graph C right here.
• 0:23 - 0:26
The quadratic function is the parabola, graph F.
• 0:26 - 0:33
The absolute value function, which you saw in a problem set earlier in the course, is graph B.
• 0:33 - 0:36
The cubic function is graph D.
• 0:36 - 0:42
And the square root function is graph E.
Now you may not have seen this graph before either.
• 0:42 - 0:46
But as always, you can test points picking values of x
• 0:46 - 0:49
and then plugging them into the function to figure what the y coordinate should be.
• 0:49 - 0:54
The graph of this function is
y equals the square root of x.
• 0:54 - 0:58
So if x equals 0, y equals 0.
If x equals 1, y equals 1.
• 0:58 - 1:06
And we can see that moving further over,
if x equals 5, y equals just over 2.
