Compare the graphs of the functions
f(x) = x8 and g(x) = x2.
In the following LiveMath Notebook, you can view the graphs of y = f(x)
(red graph) and y = g(x) (blue graph).
You can change the function in the notebook above. Try
[To change the definition of f(x) in the notebook above, highlight the exponent in
side of the second equation and then type in the new exponent.
Do not forget to also change the first equation which is the formula for g.]
- f(x) = x8 and g(x) = x10
- f(x) = x3 and g(x) = x7
- f(x) = x3 and g(x) = x4
