1.

The path passes through the origin and has vertex at $( −4,7 ), ( −4,7 ),$ so $h(x)=– 7 16 (x+4) 2 +7. h(x)=– 7 16 (x+4) 2 +7.$ To make the shot, $h( −7.5 ) h( −7.5 )$ would need to be about 4 but $h(–7.5)≈1.64; h(–7.5)≈1.64;$ he doesn’t make it.

## 5.2Power Functions and Polynomial Functions

1.

$f(x) f(x)$ is a power function because it can be written as $f(x)=8 x 5 . f(x)=8 x 5 .$ The other functions are not power functions.

2.

As $x x$ approaches positive or negative infinity, $f( x ) f( x )$ decreases without bound: as because of the negative coefficient.

3.

The degree is 6. The leading term is $− x 6 . − x 6 .$ The leading coefficient is $−1. −1.$

4.

As It has the shape of an even degree power function with a negative coefficient.

5.

The leading term is $0.2 x 3 , 0.2 x 3 ,$ so it is a degree 3 polynomial. As $x x$ approaches positive infinity, $f( x ) f( x )$ increases without bound; as $x x$ approaches negative infinity, $f( x ) f( x )$ decreases without bound.

6.

y-intercept $(0,0); (0,0);$ x-intercepts $(0,0),(–2,0), (0,0),(–2,0),$ and $(5,0) (5,0)$

7.

There are at most 12 $x- x-$ intercepts and at most 11 turning points.

8.

The end behavior indicates an odd-degree polynomial function; there are 3 $x- x-$ intercepts and 2 turning points, so the degree is odd and at least 3. Because of the end behavior, we know that the lead coefficient must be negative.

9.

The $x- x-$ intercepts are $(2,0),(−1,0), (2,0),(−1,0),$ and $(5,0), (5,0),$ the y-intercept is $(0,2), (0,2),$ and the graph has at most 2 turning points.

## 5.3Graphs of Polynomial Functions

1.

y-intercept $(0,0); (0,0);$ x-intercepts $(0,0),(–5,0),(2,0), (0,0),(–5,0),(2,0),$ and $(3,0) (3,0)$

2.

The graph has a zero of –5 with multiplicity 3, a zero of -1 with multiplicity 2, and a zero of 3 with multiplicity 4.

3.
4.

Because $f f$ is a polynomial function and since $f(1) f(1)$ is negative and $f(2) f(2)$ is positive, there is at least one real zero between $x=1 x=1$ and $x=2. x=2.$

5.

$f(x)=− 1 8 (x−2) 3 (x+1) 2 (x−4) f(x)=− 1 8 (x−2) 3 (x+1) 2 (x−4)$

6.

The minimum occurs at approximately the point $(0,−6.5), (0,−6.5),$ and the maximum occurs at approximately the point $(3.5,7). (3.5,7).$

6.

## 5.6Rational Functions

1.

End behavior: as Local behavior: as (there are no x- or y-intercepts)

2.

The function and the asymptotes are shifted 3 units right and 4 units down. As $x→3,f(x)→∞, x→3,f(x)→∞,$ and as $x→±∞,f(x)→−4. x→±∞,f(x)→−4.$

The function is $f(x)= 1 (x−3) 2 −4. f(x)= 1 (x−3) 2 −4.$

3.

$12 11 12 11$

4.

The domain is all real numbers except $x=1 x=1$ and $x=5. x=5.$

5.

Removable discontinuity at $x=5. x=5.$ Vertical asymptotes: $x=0,x=1. x=0,x=1.$

6.

Vertical asymptotes at $x=2 x=2$ and $x=–3; x=–3;$ horizontal asymptote at $y=4. y=4.$

7.

For the transformed reciprocal squared function, we find the rational form. $f(x)= 1 (x−3) 2 −4= 1−4 (x−3) 2 (x−3) 2 = 1−4( x 2 −6x+9) (x−3)(x−3) = −4 x 2 +24x−35 x 2 −6x+9 f(x)= 1 (x−3) 2 −4= 1−4 (x−3) 2 (x−3) 2 = 1−4( x 2 −6x+9) (x−3)(x−3) = −4 x 2 +24x−35 x 2 −6x+9$

Because the numerator is the same degree as the denominator we know that as is the horizontal asymptote. Next, we set the denominator equal to zero, and find that the vertical asymptote is $x=3, x=3,$ because as $x→3,f(x)→∞. x→3,f(x)→∞.$ We then set the numerator equal to 0 and find the x-intercepts are at $(2.5,0) (2.5,0)$ and $(3.5,0). (3.5,0).$ Finally, we evaluate the function at 0 and find the y-intercept to be at $( 0, −35 9 ). ( 0, −35 9 ).$

8.

Horizontal asymptote at $y= 1 2 . y= 1 2 .$ Vertical asymptotes at y-intercept at $( 0, 4 3 . ) ( 0, 4 3 . )$

x-intercepts at $(–2,0) (–2,0)$ is a zero with multiplicity 2, and the graph bounces off the x-axis at this point. $(2,0) (2,0)$ is a single zero and the graph crosses the axis at this point.
