R5 Lecture Notes NonLinear Functions 1 Quadratic function F xa x2bxc This graphs a parabola Ushaped graph with a vertex To find the vertex use this formula X 22 61 The opposite of b over 2a What is a vertex it is the highest or lowest point on parabola forms a vertical line of symmetry Conditions of quadratic function 1 a gt 0 positive number graph opens 2 a lt 0 negative number graph opens down 3 a O the equation creates a straight line Solving quadratic equations for x 1 set equation to zero 2 factor equation 3 set each factor to zero 4 solve forx 2 Quadratic formula if factoring doesn t work x bZ CI 2what goes where remember in the quadratic function F xa x2bxc a b and c are all coefficients that get plugged into the quadratic formula ONLY IF FACTORING DOES NOT WORK solve for x 3 Polynomials General form fx anx2 an1x 1 a2x2 a1x looks crazy a coefficients or real numbers xn just x to any exponent What is a degree of a polynomial this is just the value of the highest power 2x3 4x2 x 1 what is the degree of the function 2x3 is the value with the highest exponent so the degree of the function is 3 degree is iust the biggest exoonent Special Cases 1 Quadratic a hx4x2x1 2 Linear a hx X 1 3 Power Function a hx 2x3 DOMAIN OF ANY POLYNOMIAL IS THE REAL LINE 4 Rational Functions rational functions are ratios of two polynomials example y fx hx y 3x2 4x 2x 10 domain excludes any value that would cause the denominator to be zero Inverse Functions y kx k has a degree of O x has a degree of 1 inverse function is NOT defined when x 0 domain ooOUOoo Absolute Value Function y M Domain all real numbers SduareRoot Function Fx X domain xx 2 O 0 00 Rational and Radical Exponents m X DDmnltlltZ gtCI x Z rational form radical form how n the root of x m is the exponent of x going from rational to radical pull n in front of square root sign XAm stays under radical going from radical to rational reverse steps pull X out of the root exponent of X m goes over the root of X n for X A mn IF EXPONENT IS NEGATIVE lT BECOMES A FRACTION 1 mn X mn Application Supply and Demand Demand function the quantity that consumers demand is inversely proportional to the price a decreasing function of price as price goes T demand goes i as price goes i demand goes T Supplv function the quantity that suppliers are willing to produce is propportional to the price an increasing function of price as price goes T supply goes T as price goes i supply goes i Equilibrium Point the point where supply and demand functions cross this is a price point Units are notation the equilibrium point is often denoted as Xe qe Example For supply and demand functions below find the equilibrium point DX 5 X SX X 7 FIRST if you plot demand function you nd that DX O at X 5 Domain of the function XO s X s 5 SECOND we set Demand Supply 5 X X 7 square both sides to get rid of the square root 5 X2 X 72 5 X2 X 7 foil out 5 X2 X21OX25X7 subtract 7 X2 10X 18 X subtract X X211X180 factor X9X2O set each factor to O and solve X 9 X 2 Since X 9 is not in the domain XO s X s 5 the only answer left is X 2 Substitute 2 in for Domain function OR Supply function DX5X DX52 DX3 You get 2 3 as the Equilibrium point
