how do you answer this..?
Hello, camherokid!
Describe at least two ways the graph changes as a changes.
. . y .= .½[e^{-x/a} + e^{x/a}]
The curve is called a catenary, which resembles a parabola.Code:* | * | * | * * | * * | * * | * * | - - - - - - + - - - - - - |
As |a| gets larger, the graph gets "wider".
. . There is a horizontal dilation.
As |a| gets smaller, the graph gets "narrower".
. . There is a horizontal compression.
