c) The graphs could intersect, i.e., f(x)=2x
and g(x)=x. However, if they intersect,
they will intersect no more than once
because f(x) grows faster than g(x).

x=3, but might occur at either
point.
c) |𝑥| does not have asymptotes.
d) The graph of f intersects both
axes.
e) f'(-1)=0 is not always true since
there could be a corner at x=-1 .
