How to find coordinates of vertex, and find out if the function has minimum or maximum value and find that value? f(x)=2x^2+8x+9 & f(x)=-x^2-2x+7 Please explain..I'm very lost. :(

is x=5 a function No. The plot (graph) is a vertical line at x=5, so y can have many different values, in fact, any value. a function has one y value for each x value. thanks

Calculus
Find the linear approximation L(x) of the given function at a, and use it to approximate the function value at the given x-value. f(x)=x^(1/3), a=-27, x=-28 I found the derivative to be f'(x)= 1/[3(-27)^(2/3)] but it does not exist because a number cannot be negative in a root.

MATH
A graph is used to relate two variables x, and y using a relation called a function. For example, y=2x is a function that tells us that y has a value equal to twice the value of x. This is what Jenny asked about, the "equation", or the function that relates x and y. It is ...

inverse function question
There is no such thing as the log of a negative number or zero. Because of the absolute value in the definition of f(x), the only value of x for which f(x) is not defined is x = 1/2. An inverse function of f(x) can be defined for all x, but there will be two values of f^-1(x) ...

try drawing a graph. in the definition of a function, an x value can only have one y value. since the x value of four has two y values (5 and 9), it can't be a function. try going to wikipedia and searching for "function mathematics" if you're still having trouble. it has the ...

I believe that there has to be another part to this question. I will assume the function describes the number of tickets sold for a given day, if x is the day. B) the function is a parabola which opens downwards, so it has a max value, the function value being that maximum. A...

You need to specify both a lower and an upper limit for the x integration. You only specified one. The indefinite integral of that function, which you need to solve the problenm is (1/2)e^x^2. The value of that function at x = 1 is e/2. The value at x = 0 is 1/2. If the lower ...

is the function f(x)=x^2 increasing on decreasing at x = -1. can anyone please check my reasoning: the value of the derivative of the function at x=-1 is -2, so that means the slope of the tangent line to the graph at that is a negative value so the function is decreasing at x...

First, what is a function? In Cartesian mathematics, a function is an expression which, for any value of x, there exists one and only one value of y. A function can be either a straight line (linear) or a curvy line (non-linear). If you look at a linear equation graphically, ...

generally speaking, if for any x you pick a unique value of y is determined by your equation, then the relation is a function e.g., y = x^2 is a function. any x you choose yields only one y value but x = y^2 is NOT a function because x = 9 yields 2 values of y, namely ą3

When they say "find the curve" they mean find the equation of function whose graph would be that curve. your equation y = 2x^2 + 3x - 4 would graph to be a parabola, and a parabola is a curve. As to the constant, remember that if you differentiate an equation like y = 2x^2 + ...
