Math 153 Exam #1 Study Guide Different Ways to Represent Functions ● There is only one X value for any Y value to pass the vertical line test ● Functions can be ordered pairs ● Functions must pass a vertical line test Evaluating Functions ● There is an x input which replaces an x in the function. The solution is the output  or the y value.      Finding Domains of Functions ● The domain for any polynomial is ALL REAL NUMBERS (-∞,∞) ● Almost all values in the domain  ○ ☆EXCEPTION ­ values that cause the denominator to be zero!! Radical Functions ● Can’t find EVEN ROOT of a NEGATIVE # ● Find domain of a radical that makes x positive Piecewise Functions ● Follows different rules at different intervals to uphold vertical line test ● OPEN dot = not included ● CLOSED dot = included ● When evaluating piecewise functions, apply the x value in f(x) to the  qualifications on the side to determine which function that x belongs to to get the proper  y value Composite Functions ● Where f ? g (x) = f(g(x)) and likewise?g f (x) = g(f(x)) ● Only time g ? f (x) = f? g (x) is when they are INVERSE FUNCTIONS of  each other so they equal X Inverse Functions ● (x,y) = (y,x) ●    F   =   F⁻¹ ● In order to solve inverse functions ○ Switch the x with y and solve for x Expression of a Cubic Function ● Ax³+bx²+cx+d ● f(5)= 80 , f(­3)= f(0) = f(6)=0 ○ Find a, b, c, d ○ All terms (EXCEPT d) disappear for f(0) ■ f(0)= a(0)³ + b(0)² + c(0) + d = 0 ● d=0 ○ ax³ + bx² + cx ■ f(5)= a(5)³ + b(5)² + c(5) = 80 ● 125a + 25b + 5c = 80 ■ f(­3)= a(­3)³ + b(­3)² + c(­3) =0 ● ­27a + 9b ­3c =0 ■ f(6)= a(6)³ + b(6)² + c(6) =0 ● 216a + 36b + 6c = 0 ○ System { 125a +25b +5c = 80 } { ­27a +9b ­3c = 0 } { 216a + 36b +6c = 0 }  ● Solve: a= ­2, b= 6, c= 36 ○ f(x)= ­2x³ +6x² +36x ● Or just use x intercepts (much easier way) Trigonometry Review ● x= adjacent  /  y= opposite  /  r= hypotenuse  ○ sin θ = y/r csc θ = r/y ○ cos θ = x/r sec θ = r/x ○ tan = y/x cot = x/y θ θ ● Use unit circle and special triangles and reference angles            Transformations of Functions and Graphs ● f(x) +h ○ Shift vertically ● f(x­h) ○ Shift horizontally ● f(ax) ○ Stretch or compress ● ­f(x) ○ Reflect across x­axis ● f(­x) ○ Reflect across y­axis Combination of Functions ● (f+g) (x) = f(x) + g(x) ● (f­g) (x) = f(x) ­ g(x) ● (fg) (x) = f(x) * g(x) ● (f/g) (x) = f(x) / g(x) Exponential Functions ● Laws  ● Graphs ○ Functions with a fraction slope are in DECLINE ○ Functions with a natural # slope are in INCLINE Natural Exponential Functions ● f(x) = e^x ○ a>1      →     e>1 ● Domain (-∞,∞) ● Range (0,∞) Logarithms                            ● Laws ○ Product  →logₐ(M)+logₐ(N)=logₐ(M+N) ○ Quotient  →logₐ(M)−logₐ(N)=logₐ(M/N) R ○ Power  M¿ =R∗logₐ(M) →logₐ¿ ● Natural Log (ln) ○ f(x) = ln(x) = logₑx ■ ln1=0 ■ lne=1
