Practice
Ex: Graphing Square Root Functions
• Graph the parent function of the square root function and the
following function on the same graph. Tell what transformation
were done to the square root parent function. Graph at least
four points on each.
a.
y  x 5
Ex: Graphing Square Root Functions
• Graph the parent function of the square root function and the
following function on the same graph. Tell what transformation
were done to the square root parent function. Graph at least
three points on each.
b. y  x  3
Ex: Graphing Square Root Functions
• Graph the parent function of the square root function and the
following function on the same graph. Tell what transformation
were done to the square root parent function. Graph at least
four points on each.
c.
y  x  2 1
Ex: Graphing Square Root Functions
• Graph the parent function of the square root function and the
following function on the same graph. Tell what transformation
were done to the square root parent function. Graph at least
four points on each.
d. y  2 x
Square Roots and nth roots
• When c≥0, the square root of c is the non
negative solution of the equation x2=c
• Cube roots, fourth roots, and higher roots are
defined as solutions of the equation xn=c
• These equations can be solve graphically by
finding the x coordinate of the intersection
points of y=xn and y=c
