### 1.1Functions and Function Notation

1.

a. yes; b. yes. (Note: If two players had been tied for, say, 4th place, then the name would not have been a function of rank.)

2.

$w=f(d) w=f(d)$

3.

yes

4.

$g( 5 )=1 g( 5 )=1$

5.

$m=8 m=8$

6.

$y=f( x )= x 3 2 y=f( x )= x 3 2$

7.

$g( 1 )=8 g( 1 )=8$

8.

$x=0 x=0$or$x=2 x=2$

9.

a. yes, because each bank account has a single balance at any given time; b. no, because several bank account numbers may have the same balance; c. no, because the same output may correspond to more than one input.

10.
2. No, it is not one-to-one. There are 100 different percent numbers we could get but only about five possible letter grades, so there cannot be only one percent number that corresponds to each letter grade.
11.

yes

12.

No, because it does not pass the horizontal line test.

The local maximum appears to occur at$(−1,28), (−1,28),$and the local minimum occurs at$(5,−80). (5,−80).$The function is increasing on$(−∞,−1)∪(5,∞) (−∞,−1)∪(5,∞)$and decreasing on$(−1,5). (−1,5).$ ### 1.4Composition of Functions

1.

$( fg )( x )=f( x )g( x )=( x−1 )( x 2 −1 )= x 3 − x 2 −x+1 ( f−g )( x )=f( x )−g( x )=( x−1 )−( x 2 −1 )=x− x 2 ( fg )( x )=f( x )g( x )=( x−1 )( x 2 −1 )= x 3 − x 2 −x+1 ( f−g )( x )=f( x )−g( x )=( x−1 )−( x 2 −1 )=x− x 2$

No, the functions are not the same.

2.

A gravitational force is still a force, so $a( G(r) ) a( G(r) )$ makes sense as the acceleration of a planet at a distance r from the Sun (due to gravity), but $G( a(F) ) G( a(F) )$ does not make sense.

9. ### 1.1 Section Exercises

1.

A relation is a set of ordered pairs. A function is a special kind of relation in which no two ordered pairs have the same first coordinate.

3.

When a vertical line intersects the graph of a relation more than once, that indicates that for that input there is more than one output. At any particular input value, there can be only one output if the relation is to be a function.

5.

When a horizontal line intersects the graph of a function more than once, that indicates that for that output there is more than one input. A function is one-to-one if each output corresponds to only one input.

### 1.2 Section Exercises

1.

The domain of a function depends upon what values of the independent variable make the function undefined or imaginary.

3.

There is no restriction on$x x$for$f(x)= x 3 f(x)= x 3$because you can take the cube root of any real number. So the domain is all real numbers,$(−∞,∞). (−∞,∞).$When dealing with the set of real numbers, you cannot take the square root of negative numbers. So$x x$-values are restricted for$f(x)= x f(x)= x$to nonnegative numbers and the domain is$[0,∞). [0,∞).$

5.

Graph each formula of the piecewise function over its corresponding domain. Use the same scale for the$x x$-axis and$y y$-axis for each graph. Indicate inclusive endpoints with a solid circle and exclusive endpoints with an open circle. Use an arrow to indicate$−∞ −∞$orCombine the graphs to find the graph of the piecewise function.

A horizontal shift results when a constant is added to or subtracted from the input. A vertical shifts results when a constant is added to or subtracted from the output.

3.

A horizontal compression results when a constant greater than 1 is multiplied by the input. A vertical compression results when a constant between 0 and 1 is multiplied by the output.

For a function$f, f,$substitute$(−x) (−x)$for$(x) (x)$in$f(x). f(x).$Simplify. If the resulting function is the same as the original function,$f(−x)=f(x), f(−x)=f(x),$then the function is even. If the resulting function is the opposite of the original function,$f(−x)=−f(x), f(−x)=−f(x),$then the original function is odd. If the function is not the same or the opposite, then the function is neither odd nor even.

1.

Isolate the absolute value term so that the equation is of the form$|A|=B. |A|=B.$Form one equation by setting the expression inside the absolute value symbol,$A, A,$equal to the expression on the other side of the equation,$B. B.$Form a second equation by setting$A A$equal to the opposite of the expression on the other side of the equation,$−B. −B.$Solve each equation for the variable.

3.

The graph of the absolute value function does not cross the$x x$-axis, so the graph is either completely above or completely below the$x x$-axis.

5.

First determine the boundary points by finding the solution(s) of the equation. Use the boundary points to form possible solution intervals. Choose a test value in each interval to determine which values satisfy the inequality.

### 1.7 Section Exercises

1.

Each output of a function must have exactly one output for the function to be one-to-one. If any horizontal line crosses the graph of a function more than once, that means that$y y$-values repeat and the function is not one-to-one. If no horizontal line crosses the graph of the function more than once, then no$y y$-values repeat and the function is one-to-one.

3.

Yes. For example,$f(x)= 1 x f(x)= 1 x$is its own inverse.

5.

Given a function$y=f(x), y=f(x),$solve for$x x$in terms of$y. y.$Interchange the$x x$and$y. y.$Solve the new equation for$y. y.$The expression for$y y$is the inverse,$y= f −1 (x). y= f −1 (x).$
