Let f be the function be defined by f(x)=5^((2x^2)-1)^(1/2)

find the range of f without using a calculator

  • Let f be the function be defined by f(x)=5^((2x^2) - ,

    f(x)=5^((2x^2)-1)^(1/2)
    = 5^(x^2 - 1/2)

    x^2 is always positive, so the smallest exponent that 5 could have is -1/2 when x = 0
    for any other value of x, x^2 - 1/2 is greater than -1/2

    we know 5^(-1/2) = 1/√5 or √5/5

    so the range is y ≥ √5/5
